Ruiz Carriedo | HCSO

On Sept. 22, 2022, at about 1:41 p.m., an adult female contacted the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Communications Center to report a domestic violence incident that had occurred at a residence on the 2300 block of Plunkett Road in Bayside.

The victim told deputies that she had been assaulted and held against her will by 41-year-old Emiliano Ruiz Carriedo, with whom she was in a dating relationship. The victim was able to escape the residence and contact law enforcement. She was transported to a local hospital with moderate injuries.

Meanwhile, deputies received information that Carriedo was possibly barricaded inside the Plunkett Road residence. HCSO SWAT and the Humboldt County Crisis Negotiation Team were dispatched to respond. As the teams were being mobilized, Carriedo surrendered to deputies on scene without incident.

Carriedo was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of kidnapping (PC 207(a)), false imprisonment (PC 236), inflicting corporal injury on a spouse (PC 273.5(a)) and violation of probation (PC 1203.2(a)(2)).
