A 25-year-old Rancho Murieta man faces arraignment Thursday on charges that he attacked a bicyclist in Murieta North, using his truck to try to run the 50-year-old victim off the road before punching him in the face.

Tyler Immer is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and battery causing serious bodily injury in connection with the April 22 incident, which occurred at lunchtime on Murieta Parkway across from the Rancho Murieta Association Building.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Tony Turnbull said Immer and the bicyclist exchanged words outside the Country Store. The bicyclist told police he was told to “Go back to the hood.” Immer is white; the victim, whose identity is being withheld, is black.

“After the argument,” Turnbull wrote in an email, “the suspect located the victim inside the gate of Rancho Murieta and used his vehicle to run the victim off the road.  The victim fell off his bike while evading the suspect vehicle, causing injury.  The suspect then exited the truck and punched the victim in the face.”

The victim suffered a knee injury, requiring surgery, and a swollen eye, his family said.

Rancho Murieta Security said the victim, who lives in Sacramento, was visiting his mother in Rancho Murieta at the time. There was a witness and video footage from the North Gate, according to Chief Greg Remson.

Immer, arrested and charged May 12, is free on $25,000 bail, Turnbull said.

Finally the investigation got results

I'm glad to hear that Tyler Immer was finally arrested and charged. I do hope that the DA's office tacks on hate crime charges as well, since clearly it was..

Tyler lives in Rancho Murieta

Yes, he lives in our community, on the south...the RVT said in their article that Security is very familiar with him..so he has escalated his criminal behavior..
