At about 4:00 pm Sunday afternoon, a Turlock Police officer in the area of Fast Stop Groceries and Liquor, 301 West Canal Drive, Turlock, spotted Ramon Flores, 29, of Turlock, sitting in a vehicle in front of the business. The officer recognized Flores and knew that he was on post release community supervision, so he got out with him to conduct a compliance check.
When Flores noticed the officer approaching him, he began to flee eastbound on foot to the 200 block of West Syracuse Avenue. Officers momentarily lost Flores, but shortly later discovered that he had jumped a fence into the backyard of a residence.
Officers surrounded the residence and ordered that Flores surrender, however, he refused to do so. Officer Hiram Duncan, a member of the department’s Hostage Negotiation Team who just happened to be on scene, began talking with Flores over the fence, eventually convincing him to peacefully surrender.
When Flores surrendered, he told officers that he felt like he was about to have a seizure, so American Medical Response was requested to respond for a checkout.
After Flores was medically cleared by paramedics on scene, he was arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on unknown charges.
