Man convicted of assaulting girlfriend, good Samaritan

A man accused of assaulting his girlfriend, then punching a good Samaritan who came to her aid has been found guilty by a Sacramento County jury.

Timothy Hurst, 25, was convicted of six counts, including domestic violence, assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury.

After repeatedly choking his live-in girlfriend, Hurst followed her down the street after she attempted to escape, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney's Office news release. A young man saw the situation escalating and intervened. Hurst then repeatedly punched the man, rendering him unconscious, and robbed him of his belongings.

Hurst is to be sentenced Aug. 23 by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Sharon Lueras.
