WOODLAND // On August 8th just before 8 AM, police arrived at a North Street apartment complex to investigate a reported incident of domestic violence.

The report alleged that a man — identified as 41-year-old Jorge Ahumada — had struck his 73-year-old father and was potentially armed with a screwdriver or knife.

Responding officers spoke with Ahumada in front of the complex. Ahumada is said to have brandished a screwdriver and would not comply with verbal commands to drop it.

He then advanced toward officers as they repeatedly advised him to stop. That was when Ahumada retreated and locked himself in the apartment.

Woodland PD’s Tactical Ops Team responded in short order and, for over an hour, attempted to negotiate with Ahumada over a PA system and remote phone. When this proved unsuccessful, “chemical agents and a taser” were deployed with successful results.

Ahumada was arrested and taken to Woodland Memorial for medical clearance, then booked at Yolo County Jail for “four active warrants, felony elder abuse, brandishing a weapon, and obstructing peace officers.”
