Synopsis: On 02/27/12 at about 2330 hours Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office were summoned to Howard Memorial Hospital regarding a female at the location who advised she had been assaulted by her boyfriend Erick Ramirez.

Deputies arrived and contacted a female adult who was currently eight months pregnant. She was being treated for injuries to the face. Deputies learned the female had been in an argument with her live in boyfriend Erick Ramirez and during the argument, Ramirez had assaulted the female causing her to have a bloody nose. Deputies further learned the suspect may have stabbed another male with a knife at the residence located on Valley Rd. Willits. Further investigation revealed a male subject had attempted to separate Ramirez from the female and had been cut on the hand by a knife.

Ramirez was taken into custody and booked into the Mendocino County Jail on charges of spousal abuse and assault with a deadly weapon.
