PETALUMA – According to a Petaluma Police Department (PPD) Advisory, officials are seeking the public’s help in locating a domestic violence suspect. The suspect has been identified as 37-year-old Nicklaus Ryan Krinaich of Petaluma.
Krinaich is currently on probation for domestic violence and had recently committed an act of vandalism against a friend of his victim. He has a “no bail” felony warrant for a violation of domestic violence probation stemming from an incident in July. He also now has a $50,000 warrant for the vandalism incident.
The vandalism occurred on December 19th when a witness saw Krinaich committing an act of felony vandalism against a female friend of the victim from the July domestic violence incident. Krinaich used a bicycle to repeatedly damage the friend’s car repeatedly before fleeing the area.
It is believed that Krinaich is aware that he is wanted. He has a history of fleeing from authorities and had recently fled from both PPD and SFPD officers that were attempting to arrest him. Efforts to locate and arrest him are ongoing.
