On 4/21/2017, Detectives from the Camarillo Police Department Investigations Unit arrested Anthony Ramirez, an Oxnard resident, for stalking his ex-wife.


On 4/13/2017, Camarillo Detectives received a report of a violation of a domestic violence restraining order listing Ramirez as the suspect.  During the investigation, Detectives learned that Ramirez was suspected of violating the same restraining order about six times over a six week period.  He was also accused of threatening the victim (violation of California Penal Code 422/ Criminal Threats).   The violations had occurred in the cities of Ventura, Port Hueneme, and Camarillo.  Camarillo Detectives, working with detectives from these agencies, reviewed all of the reports and determined that Ramirez was committing the crime of stalking (violation of California Penal Code 646.9(a) P.C.).  Detectives presented the case to the Ventura County District Attorney's Office and obtained a warrant for Ramirez' arrest.


On 4/21/2017, Detectives contacted Ramirez at his home in Oxnard and arrested him without incident.  Ramirez was booked at the Ventura County Main Jail, and his bail was set at $250,000. 


Domestic violence is a serious crime. On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. If you, or someone you know is the victim of domestic violence, report it to your local law enforcement agency.  The victim in this case reported the incidents to police who were able to apprehend the suspect before it escalated into a violent situation.
