Man Arrested After Allegedly Brutally Attacking Man In Tehama County

A 45-year-old man is in Tehama County Jail for a brutal attack in Rancho Tehama. At 4:30PM Sunday afternoon, deputies were called about an attack on a 40-year-old man. Phillip Andreas had allegedly pushed the man down and beat him until he was unresponsive. Andreas then reportedly stole the victim’s car and used it to ram a car that was uninvolved in the conflict, occupied by a woman and a young child. The child suffered minor injuries. The battered man had major trauma to his head and face, and was transported to a hospital by a CHP helicopter. His condition is not known. While deputies were still there, Andreas returned to the scene and reportedly admitted to the allegations. He was booked into jail on multiple charges.
