On 04-26-2021 at around 5:55 AM, Mendocino County Deputy Sheriffs were dispatched to a disturbance in the 17000 block of Redwood Springs Drive in Fort Bragg, California.

Deputies were advised that an adult male had attempted to attack another adult male with a knife inside the residence. 

Deputies arrived and contacted Miguel Carrillo-Palomar and a 21 year-old male. 

Deputies learned Carrillo-Palomar had attacked the 21 year-old male with a large kitchen knife and the 21 year-old male was able to use an object to successfully defend himself against the knife attack for an extended period of time. 

The 21 year-old male then used a different object to strike Carrillo-Palomar enough times to cause him to stop the attack.  Deputies inspected the items and observed damages consistent with statement(s) gathered at the scene.  Deputies also recovered the knife used in the attack. 

Based on the evidence located at the scene and statement(s) obtained, Deputies arrested Carrilo-Palomar for 245 PC (Assault with a Deadly Weapon – Knife).

Due to the seriousness of the offense, Deputies contacted a Mendocino County Superior Court Judge and requested a bail enhancement.  The Superior Court Judge ordered that Carrillo-Palomar be held in lieu of $30,000.00 bail. 

Carrillo-Palomar was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail in lieu of $30,000.00 bail.
