Two girls pushed off cliff in Carlsbad

CARLSBAD — Early Tuesday morning, two young women were pushed from a cliff near Terramar Beach.

Around 12:45 a.m. the Carlsbad Police Department received a call from a community member that had been flagged down.

Two females, a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old, were with two adult men at Carlsbad Boulevard and Cerezo Drive.

An argument ensued and one of the adults pushed the two girls off the cliff, falling about 10 to 15 feet onto a cliff shelf below.

The 18-year-old had some minor injuries but declined medical help. The 17-year-old received some injuries but they weren’t life threatening.

She went to Scripps Medical Center in La Jolla.

Alcohol is thought to have played a role in the incident.

At 3:30 p.m., investigators interviewed and subsequently arrested 20-year-old Bradley Huston who resides at Camp Pendleton.

Huston was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and battery causing serious injury and booked into the Vista Detention Facility.

The investigation is ongoing.
