An Oakdale man was arrested during a recent traffic stop, taken into custody for domestic violence charges stemming from an early September incident.

Shortly before 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 3, a citizen went to the Oakdale Police Department to report she was assaulted on Sept. 2 by her ex-boyfriend, identified as Nicholas Rojas Ramirez Jr., 54, of Oakdale. He was subsequently arrested on multiple felony charges.

The victim alleged she and Rojas went to his residence on Sept. 2 where she was later held against her will, tortured and assaulted with a baseball bat. Rojas reportedly prevented the victim from calling for police emergency services by throwing her phone during the incident.

A warrant was issued for Ramirez’s arrest as his whereabouts was unknown following the incident. Oakdale Police located Ramirez on Sept. 4 and he was taken into custody during a traffic stop. Ramirez was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on suspicion of domestic violence/strangulation, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, threats and disabling a phone during an emergency.

A search warrant was also served on Ramirez’s residence on Sept. 4 related to the ongoing investigation. The case remains under active investigation.

Ramirez remained jailed in lieu of $175,000 bail with a scheduled court date of Sept. 12.
