Drew Smith Warner, 49, from Sausalito was arrested on allegations he threw raw chicken and a candle holder at a woman in Marin City.
Warner was arrested on Monday night after the incident.
The woman called authorities to report she was bleeding from the head after an attack by Warner, said sheriff’s Lt. Barry Heying.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived to find the 52-year-old woman distraught and soaked in blood, with chicken pieces thrown about the kitchen, Heying said.
Deputies determined that the woman and Warner, her friend and residential health care aide, had been in an argument prior to the alleged attack.
As deputies went out to locate Warner, they found bloody garments in the area that matched the woman’s description of what he was wearing.
Warner was booked on suspicion of assault after he was spotted in Dunphy Park on the Sausalito waterfront.
The district attorney’s office is reviewing the case for potential charges. Warner is being held at the county jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
