A man is under arrest after he allegedly attacked a woman in her own yard.

It happened on the 1300 block of 23rd street in Oceano Wednesday.

A woman came home after a walk with her toddler and found Kenneth Groves in her yard.

Police say the 55-year-old grabbed her throat and threatened to kill her with a knife.

She screamed for help and three men in a car heard it.

They jumped a fence, fought with Groves and held him until police arrived.

Groves is now facing a number of charges including assault with a deadly weapon.
