The following is a press release issued by the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On 06-06-2022 at 10:40 P.M., Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were dispatched to the 800 block of Sanel Drive in Ukiah, CA., to conduct a welfare check of a 49 year-old female. Deputies were unable to locate the female at the location. The Deputies contacted a family member who was able to track the female utilizing a cell phone application they both shared. The family member informed Deputies the female was possibly with her boyfriend, subsequently identified as Anthony Ocampo, at a business on Airport Park Boulevard in Ukiah, CA.
The Deputies responded to the location where they contacted Ocampo and the female parked in their vehicle. The Deputies initiated a domestic violence investigation and learned that Ocampo allegedly assaulted the female during separate incidents between 06-04-2022 and 06-06-2022. Through their investigation, Deputies developed probable cause to believe that on 06-04-2022, Ocampo locked the female in their house and would not let her leave. As the argument continued, Ocampo punched the female in the face.
On 06/06/2022, Ocampo and the female began arguing again. The two of them drove to Airport Park Boulevard to purchase items. The argument continued and at one point Ocampo threatened the female, causing her to fear for her safety. Ocampo threw items from the interior of the vehicle at the female, hitting her with some of the items.
The Deputies learned that there was a peaceful contact domestic violence restraining order between the two subjects, with Ocampo being the restrained party. Ocampo was determined to be on felony probation related to a prior incident involving the female. The Deputies concluded their investigation and arrested Ocampo for 236 PC (Felony False Imprisonment), 422 PC (Felony Criminal Threats), 1203.2 PC (Felony Violation of Probation), 243(e)(1) PC (Misdemeanor Domestic Battery) and 273.6 PC (Misdemeanor Violation of Restraining Order).
Ocampo was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he was held on a no-bail status due to violating his terms of probation.
The alleged actions described in this press release describe domestic abuse. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men experience sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner during their lifetimes.
