Synopsis: On 11/21/2018 at approximately 2:59 AM, Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 2400 block of Mill Creek Road in Talmage, when a 51 year old Male adult returned home from work and located the windows to his residence broken and his front door ajar. Numerous household items had been removed from the residence and strewn about the yard. Naumann looked inside his residence and found the interior had been severely vandalized and an unknown subject was sleeping on his couch.

The home owner armed himself with a small caliber handgun, called 9-1-1 and began checking the interior of his residence. When he returned to his living room, he was ambushed by the assailant, who struck him in the head with a large book, knocking him to the floor. The assailant, later identified as Marcus D’Angelo Davis, 37 years old of Oakland (pictured above), grabbed Naumann and began to pull on him by his lower legs. The home owner fired several rounds from his handgun, striking Davis in the upper torso and arm. The homeowner then held Davis at gunpoint until Deputies arrived.

Deputies arrived minutes later and took Davis into custody without further incident. Davis was transported via ambulance to Ukiah Valley Medical Center, where he was treated for his injuries, which were found to be non-life threatening. Davis was medically cleared and booked into the Mendocino County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon, burglary and vandalism. Davis is being held in lieu of $30,000 dollars bail.

According to the home owner he did not know and had not seen Davis prior to this incident.

Anyone with information concerning this incident is encouraged to contact the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Tip-Line at (707) 234-2100.
