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 01-11-2023 at about 8:15 PM Deputies from the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a disturbance in the 2100 block of South State Street in Ukiah, California.
Upon arrival Deputies learned Noah Luranhatt had reportedly threatened to physically harm and kill a 53-year-old female. Deputies discovered the adult female was scared for her safety prompting a call to the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies conducted an investigation and eventually located Luranhatt who was not present upon their initial arrival.
During the investigation, Deputies developed probable cause to believe Luranhatt violated California penal code section 422 (Felony Criminal threats). Deputies also learned Luranhatt was on active CDC Parole. Luranhatt’s parole officer was contacted and briefed on this incident, resulting in an issued parole hold.
The Deputies arrested Luranhatt and he was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was held on a No Bail status.
