Man arrested in court for home invasion
Ramiro Eri Torres Jr. was in Glenn County Superior Court Thursday on suspicion of committing one crime when he was arrested on suspicion of another.
The 31-year-old Orland man was in court on a slew of felony charges steming from his October arrest on suspicion of beating an eldery adult and threatening to commit a crime, court records state.
He was then arrested on new charges connected to a March 6 home invasion robbery in Orland, according to Glenn County Sherfif Larry Jones.
Jones said Torres, who is known by several names and has two social security numbers, was arrested on a warrant, which was granted by the judge based on probable cause.
Jones said Torres is being investigated as the man responsible for beating 33-year-old Abraham Rangel, who awakened around 6:30 that Wednesday morning to the sound of his bedroom door being forced open.
Jones said Rangel attemped to call 911, but claims he was punched in the chest and the phone taken from him.
Rangel reported he was held down, threatened with death and robbed of several personnel items, Joes said.
Torres was identified early on as a suspect, Jones said.
Torres was booked into the Glenn County Jail on suspicion of five counts of robbery, five counts of burglary, three counts of criminal conspiracy and one count of false imprisonment.
Bail was set at $140,000.
Some aspects of the reported home invasion are still under investigation, Jones said.
