On June 11, 2023, at about 8:27 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the area of Table Bluff and South Jetty Roads for the report of an assault and robbery. As deputies were responding, an additional reporting party contacted the Sheriff’s Emergency Communications Center regarding a male attempting to break into a residence.
Deputies arrived in the area and located the suspect, 35-year-old Jamael Brandon Lowery, walking naked on Indianola Reservation Road. Deputies detained Lowery without incident.
While continuing their investigation, deputies located and contacted four victims. One victim, a 39-year-old female, told deputies that she and Lowery had previously been in a dating relationship. While driving to the South Jetty, the victim noticed a Nissan Altima following her. Upon parking at the Jetty, Lowery reportedly exited the Altima and attacked the victim, causing minor injuries and damage to her vehicle. At some point following this incident, Lowery reportedly approached an unlocked, occupied vehicle parked by the Table Bluff Lookout. Lowery reportedly forced open the vehicle’s door, assaulted the 27-year-old female victim inside and stole her cell phone. The victim was able to push Lowery out of her vehicle and drive away to seek assistance.
Following this incident, Lowery reportedly approached a vehicle traveling along Table Bluff Road and began banging on the vehicle, attempting to open the door. During this incident, Lowery reportedly broke off the vehicle’s driver’s side mirror.
At some point following these altercations, Lowery attempted to force entry into a nearby residence via the home’s doggy door. He was confronted by a resident of the home and fled.
Lowery was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of burglary (PC 459/461(a)), inflicting corporal injury on a spouse (PC 273.5(a)), robbery (PC 211), assault (PC 240), battery (PC 242), damaging a wireless communication device to prevent a person from calling for help (PC 591.5), vandalism (PC 594(b)(2)(A)) and violation of probation (PC 1203.2(a)(1) & (2).
