Criminal Threats and Resisting an Officer Arrest


On Wednesday, March 23, 2016 at 4:30 p.m., the Ventura Police Department Command Center received a call from a family member of the suspect, later identified as Antonio Ramon, 39, reporting that he was acting delusional and threatening to harm himself at 3111 E. Main Street.  It was also reported he was armed with a screwdriver.
One officer arrived on scene and attempted to contact Ramon outside of the business.  When Ramon saw the officer approaching him, he went to a parked vehicle and retrieved a hammer from inside.  Ramon then raised the hammer and began advancing towards the officer while making threats to harm him.  The officer drew his firearm, at which time the family member stepped between Ramon and the officer.  After several commands to drop the hammer, Ramon complied and was taken into custody without incident. Ramon was also found to be in possession two screwdrivers. He was arrested and later booked into the Ventura County Jail for felony resisting an officer and criminal threats. No one was injured as a result of this incident.
