MIGUEL RAMIREZ

A Monday standoff between the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department and a suspect covered in blood ended with the uncooperative suspect in custody.

A neighbor of the suspect reported around 4 p.m. that a man was wielding a knife and was covered in blood on Winterhaven Drive in Cameron Park, said EDSO Sgt. Phil Chovanec, who responded to the call. The victim, a teenager, confirmed he had been stabbed by the suspect, identified as Miguel “Mike” Ramirez, 38.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they “saw a bunch of blood” on Ramirez, Chovanec said. Ramirez ran inside his house and a three-hour-long standoff ensued. While Ramirez came out of the house multiple times, deputies were not in a position to stop him from going back inside. A SWAT team and a K-9 unit were called in.

When Ramirez exited the house, the K-9 was able to keep him outside long enough to be apprehended, though he was still uncooperative, “belligerent, cussing and even combative,” Chovanec said.  He explained that this would not normally be a situation in which a dog would be used, but deputies were afraid there was someone else in the house who required medical attention. Even three hours, he said, is a long time, but the situation required them to be “as safe and thorough as possible.”

Ramirez was booked into El Dorado County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, child cruelty resulting in injury or death and obstruction of justice. He is being held on $750,000 bail.
