Ramirez, L

Updated 10/15/14: A 50 year old transient from Fresno, wanted in connection with the sexual assault of a twelve year old girl this past Saturday, has been arrested.

Luis Angel Ramirez turned himself in to Sheriff’s deputies last night at the Fresno County Jail, apparently after seeing himself in the local media.

Last night, shortly before 9:00pm, Ramirez arrived at the main jail to turn himself in. He was taken into custody and eventually booked into the jail on charges of kidnap, false imprisonment with violence, criminal threats, and sexual assault.

Original Press Release (10/14/14): The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating a transient Fresno man wanted in connection with the sexual assault of a twelve year old girl this past Saturday. Wanted is 50 year old Luis Angel Ramirez.

Early this morning, sheriff’s deputies responded to the sex offense call west of the City of Fresno.

During the investigation, deputies learned Ramirez, an acquaintance of the victim’s father, had kidnapped the girl from the front yard of her home and took her to a nearby truck which was parked on the property. Ramirez then put the young girl inside the truck, gagged and duct taped her mouth to prevent her from calling for help, and proceeded to sexually assault her.

Before leaving, Ramirez told the victim he would kill her entire family if she said anything about the assault. Ramirez then released the victim and fled on foot.

Ramirez is now being sought on several charges including kidnap, false imprisonment, terrorist threats, and felony sexual assault. Ramirez also has an outstanding warrant for charges of indecent exposure and attempted sexual battery from another incident.

Ramirez is described as a Hispanic male, 5-0/ 120 pounds with grayish brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a blue & gray short sleeved shirt.

Ramirez is transient and is known to frequent the area of Belmont & Freeway 99. There were several sightings of him in that area earlier today.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who knows the whereabouts of Ramirez to immediately contact the Sheriff’s Office at 600-3111, or CrimeStoppers at 498-STOP(7867).
