Bakersfield Police arrested a man Tuesday for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse and false imprisonment. 

On Saturday February 10th around 10:49 p.m. officers were dispatched to 10820 Vista Del Rancho Drive, near Buena Vista Road and Harris Road, for a report of an assault. 

Officials said three adult females were found at the scene. All three victims had blunt force trauma to the head. 

One of the victims also had an apparent stab wounds to the head. 

The victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment and are listed in stable condition. 

Through the investigation, officers determined Victor Tadros, 33, held his mother and two adult sisters against their will while inside a residence on Vista Del Rancho Drive.

During the incident, Tadros struck one of his sisters and his mother in the head with a hammer, and also stabbed the same sister several times.

As his second sister was attempting to call 911, Tadros physically assaulted her causing severe injuries. 

Tadros was arrested and booked into the Kern County Jail for numerous violations including attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, and false imprisonment.

He's currently being held on $1.2 million bail. He's expected to face a judge on Wednesday.
