24 August 2014, at approx. 7:45 pm, Officers responded to the emergency room of Sonora Regional Medical Center for a subject who was being treated for injuries sustained from a battery.
Officers contacted the 18 year old male victim at the hospital. The
victim related he and his roommate, Daniel Slawinsky, 27 of Sonora,
were arguing over the victim not doing the dishes. During the argument,
Slawinsky threw a porcelain coffee mug at the victim, which struck the
victim and broke. Slawinsky then picked up a second coffee mug and
charged the victim and struck the victim again, causing the victim to
fall to the floor.
Another roommate attempted to render aid to the victim, but was
unable to do so because of the nature of the injuries. The victim
suffered two larger and deep lacerations to his neck. One was
approximately one and a half inches long, and half inch wide. The second
was approximately one inch long, and a quarter inch wide.
Officers contacted Slawinsky at his residence on the 300 block of
Fairview Lane. Slawinsky admitted he and the victim were arguing over
the dishes not being done. Slawinsky also admitted to throwing the
coffee mug at the victim. Slawinsky was taken into custody without
incident and booked into the Tuolumne County Jail for felony assault
with a deadly weapon.
