Synopsis: On 07-20-14, at about 7:30 PM, Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 38000 block of South Highway One, Gualala, for a reported strong arm robbery which had just occurred at the location. Deputies determined the victim suffered a stab wound to the leg, contusions to the head, including his left eye and he was physically restrained from escaping by two suspects, identified as Randy Pike Jr and Peggy Hernandez. The victim was subsequently transported by air ambulance to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for treatment of his injuries. The victim reported at least $5,000 were physically removed from his person during the assault.

On 07-22-14, the victim positively identified Randy Pike Jr. and Peggy Hernandez as the suspects. In addition, through a Spanish speaking detective, it was learned the victim was threatened with death during the assault and felt in danger of losing his life.

During the morning hours of 07/25/14, the investigation revealed Pike was likely in the area of the Hopland Reservation. A Mendocino County Sheriff's Detective responded to the area and located Pike in the suspect vehicle traveling on Highway 175. Mendocino County Sheriff's Detectives and patrol deputies responded to the Hopland Sho-Ka-Wah Casino where they located and arrested Pike without incident for the listed charges. Pike was lodged at the Mendocino County Jail where he is being held with bail set at $250,000.00.

As of the date of this press release, Peggy Hernandez remains outstanding. She is known to have multiple contacts in the Gualala/Point Arena area but may be also be associated with the transient population in the Ukiah area.

Anyone with information regarding the location of Peggy Hernandez or facts concerning this case is urged to contact the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office (707-463-4086) or Detective Luis Espinoza (707-463-4107).
