An Officer Safety Bulletin has been issued to Mendocino County law enforcement regarding a Petaluma man with ties to the Norteño street gang who reportedly fought Petaluma Police Officers yesterday, rammed their vehicles, and then fled.

A Nixle Alert issued by Petaluma Police officers found Steven Michael Perez loading items into a truck of a recently reported stolen vehicle yesterday. Officers approached Perez when he became combative  “causing one of the officers to fall to the ground where she received minor injuries that required minor medical attention later.”

The suspect then attempted to flee, and upon finding himself boxed in by two marked police vehicles, Perez “then intentionally rammed two marked police vehicles that had boxed the vehicle in. Both patrol vehicles were still occupied by officers, and the subject rammed the officers in an apparent attempt to escape.”

Perez successfully fled the scene, officers lost sight of him temporarily and proved elusive after his car was found but he was nowhere to be seen. 

This morning’s Officer Safety Bulletin was the first identification of the suspect and also revealed Perez has been known to carry firearms, has faced charges of illegal possession of firearms, and is associated with the Norteño street gang.

Steven Michael Perez was described as 5’ 11’’, 180 lbs, brown hair and eyes, and wearing a dark-colored Carhartt sweatshirt with a hood.

  1. Another fine example of the benefits of uncontrolled immigration.

    Can I have my country back please?
    It seems to have disappeared in the 1960s.

    • Your both full of extremist filth, vomit, & shit. Garbage in garbage out.
      Your Fox/OAN “education” is an extremist indoctrination using mere threads of cherry picked half-truths twisted into a quilt of extremist insanity and flasehoods that blocks all factual attempts to dispel your ignorance.

      You are the tools of age old brainwashing techniques.

      Those poor poor angry white men

      Please seek treatment for those acute cases of cranial rectosis you both are suffering from.

    • That’s super funny.
      Ellis Island was in and of itself by design a control method, full of other control methods.
      Why the fk do you think they built it?

  2. It’s theirs. Ellis island illegal. Indians gave no permission to ‘build’ it. A conveyer belt for disease, pollution, environmental devastation, mass slaughter of wildlife and wetlands, uncontrolled mass murder, uncontrolled breeding, disrespect…

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
