November’s Gang-Related Stabbing in Ukiah Elicits an Arrest— Suspect with Violent Past Charged with Attempted Murder

Zambrano

Jaime Antonio Zambrano

About one month after a gang-related stabbing at a Ukiah Apartment Complex on November 28, a suspect is in the Mendocino County jail for his alleged role in the crime. As per a criminal complaint issued by the Mendocino County District Attorney’s Office, 28-year-old Ukiah man Jaime Antonio Zambrano stands accused of attempted murder.

The criminal complaint offers a special allegation associated with Zambrano’s use of a knife in the crime. His alleged involvement in the crime has also resulted in a “strike allegation” being levied against Zambrano which would count against him in California’s “Three Strikes” law.

Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Captain Greg Van Patten told us Zambrano was arrested in Los Angeles County on December 22 on a warrant out of Mendocino County for his involvement with the November stabbing. This strike allegation stems from Zambrano’s first strike in which he was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon on March 22, 2015

Interesting to note, the Ukiah area has a seen a dramatic rise in graffiti over the last couple months associated with criminal gangs. Ukiah Police Department’s Andrew Phillips told us in an interview earlier this month this sort of rise in tagging “either precedes an increase in gang-related crime or follows a gang-related crime.”

Zambrano has an extensive criminal history locally. As an 18-year-old, Zambrano was convicted of another stabbing in Ukiah. On September 26, 2012, Zambrano and two other adults punched, kicked, and stabbed a 16-year-old juvenile at Ukiah’s Vinewood park in what the Ukiah Police Department determined was gang-related violence.

A review of the Mendocino County Superior Court Case Information Portal indicates Zambrano pled down the charges which resulted in an 8-year prison sentence.

It is unclear how much of that sentence Zambrano served, but by July 2020 he was back in Mendocino County accused of misdemeanor battery. He pled guilty and spent one year in county jail.

This arrest resulted in the revocation of state parole, the establishment of new parole terms, and a warrant for his arrest was issued on December 2, 2020, after violating his new parole terms by absconding and his whereabouts were unknown.

Prior to his arrest for the recent Ukiah stabbing, Zambrano’s most recent criminal offense was felony corporal injury to a spouse and a series of other charges associated with a domestic incident. He would plead the felony down to a misdemeanor and plead guilty to a misdemeanor battery and inflict corporal injury charges. This incident would result in a sentence of three years formal-supervised probation where he was prohibited from owning firearms and required to complete community service. He was confined in the Mendocino County Jail for 25 days as a result of violating the previously agreed parole terms.

Zambrano will be arraigned this morning at 9:00 a.m. in the courtroom of Honorable Judge Carly Dolan.

With due respect to the victim of the November stabbing, it must be stated that the charges described have not been proven in a court of law. In accordance with the legal principle of the presumption of innocence, any individual described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. All of the previously described criminal incidents have been adjudicated.

I was sick of it years ago. Our laws allow this because there are no consequences. I don’t see anything in site of change either. State will do anything to save money with no regard for communities.

Borders are a racist, imperialist construct. We need to eliminate our borders; also consider reparations to those who`ve been harmed by the implicit discrimination of borders.

In 1960 or 1970 there was no ‘gang violence’ in Ukiah. Those who came from south of the border came here to work, were limited in numbers and appeared to be salt of the earth people with families, morals and a good work ethic. Nor were there herds of out of control bums & riff-raff; i.e. ‘unhoused’. A bit of a contrast with the present conditions. If this ‘woke’, diverse, social justice warrior nonsense continues, we are going to see severed heads left around town; killings in broad daylight, large scale extortion rackets. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you!

Low lives come in all colors- the problem here is related to lax penalties for crime and a lawless culture in northern CA, also a tolerance for drug addicts.

Plus attraction to weed cultivation. I would count the Green Rush and near total lack of law enforcement to be one of the most damaging blows to Northern California, the Triangle being hit the hardest.

I agree. And I grew weed most of my adult life. But there’s differences in style and magnitude. Our local culture’s embrace of commercial mega-grows was the stupidest and greediest and worst decisions ever made. We will be paying for it for a long time to come…

Thank the war on drugs for these gangs. They wouldn’t exist otherwise. It’s ignorant to think the police can do anything about it. Look at Mexico and the cartels there. That’s what will happen here if the greedy government keeps incentivizing drug dealing.

Police can do a lot. Look at what happens when you let the ‘new progressives’ take over a city like San Francisco and they stop enforcing laws. People act the worst when there are no consequences. Look at the tenderloin, look at Eureka. It’s because there are no consequences. Maybe the way we have built society over thousands of years is actually the best way to do it? Why do we keep wanting to reinvent the wheel?

yes, and by the time most people realize its almost to late to turn back the clock to the fairly clean cut or decent culture that operated california for at least our grandparents generation, well it will be too late.
change may be inevitable, but “change” is in constant tension with culture, or at least tradition..
as you may have sensed, a culture without meaningful and practiced traditions may not be a culture at all.
what we see globally today is the obliteration of culture.
to synthesis a primary message of the writer Wendell Berry, “culture” and “society” require or imply a well rooted and even a loving population in order to function at a high level.
as we see in american society, rule by “law”, absent from culture, is not a very perfect union at all.
and surely, what the corporate establishment advertises as american culture is laughable.
i’m thinking of something much more meaningful.
even at 40 i’m a idealist, lol.
pardon my pointless pontification
how to channel the violence of young men trapped in the nowheresville of a vacuous empire called coporate america?
well, that is the question..
prison doesn’t work, maybe developing healthy masculine traditions would.

Well stated, Mr Canyon Oak,

I often wonder where and what the end point of all this is? I don`t see things getting better if our present course continues. Nonsense about ‘equity’ & ‘diversity’ is abject idiocy and even if it could be fully implemented would almost certainly exacerbate our decline.

All men / women. Are created. Or born equal. Regardless of color, race creed, gender (there are only 2) stature or geographic location. What you do, And how you conduct yourself from age of accountability? Determines. How society responds to you……. Break laws? Get punished. The more serious the offense? More serious the consequences…. Take an innocent life? Capital punishment… quite simple…. I lmao. At inmates that stab each other over “RESPECT”. Are you kidding me? Your behavior requires that you be locked in a cage away from civil humans. And you demand respect?????? The world has lost its mind!!!!! Psssst. I have an idea!!!! What about work hard, apply youself to a legal constructive enterprise, walk in integrity respect those. Worthy of it be kind til its not possible And dont take crap from the ones who dont???????

One thing I believe you forgot to mention is that this perp is living in USA but the culture he ascribes to has nothing to do with corporate America but more with the culture of gangs and violence he grew up in. Not to defend this man but when I read a story of a young person like this gone so off the rails at such a young age all I can think about is “who raised this person”? What kind of transgenerational culture did he grow up in to make him so angry and misguided? It appears he has spent all of his adult life trying to live up to a standard of life handed to him from a very young age. By now he is a very dangerous person and it’s questionable if any prison or probabtion will ever change his behaviors. That will take some serious healing some where along the way. BTW – I’m not sure there ever was a time that California was ruled by clean-cut and decent nature if we go back far enough. Ahem, just look at how the Natives and the Spanish that were here first were stomped out and how all… Read more »

Who says he’s angry? I’ve known a number of killers who weren’t angry; they were/are just mean cruel people who enjoy inflicting injury, harm and pain on other people, (I know, he wasn’t successful in killing the person he stabbed; he’s either killed before or is a “killer” in his heart but failed in both attempts he was caught for). They’re predators seeking prey. In many cases it’s not anger that propels their attacks, it’s desire; they’re happy about and content with what they do, (victimizing others, killing some). Some of them enjoy the process of the killing itself; watching and feeling the other person die or hearing about it later.
There actually is good and bad; neither choice is a person who’s a puppet on a string.

Yeah- my “progressive” lib friends in Marin started freaking out over the BLM protests. Where before they enjoyed verbally attacking me from their lofty and affluent perches over my position on rural gun rights (they ganged up and called me nasty names including a Trumper- I am not) after the BLM riots they freaked and all started buying guns ha ha! It’s scary because they are fools who have no clue how to responsibly shoot ha ha!! Funny how the easily frightened can change direction so quickly…okay. maybe not funny, maybe sad, pathetic and concerning

YAY YAY HERE WE GO AGAIN!!! Another violent repeat probation/parole failure. Bet my bottom dollar that between jail stints he was out committing crimes that he never got caught for. Our probation and parole programs need more teeth to take a bite out of crime. Mearly saying oh your on parole/probation obey all laws no LEO contact report monthly. Thats a pretty low standard that is NEVER MET. There is a whole lot of unmonitored time on their hands. PAROLE STAFF WHATS YOUR RECIDIVISM VS SUCCESS RATE? Oh I think we can determine by the crimes we see it is 0.1%!!! 🤮

Well… California voters voted to reinstate the death penalty. However Governor French Laundry decided that we weren’t capable of making that decision and he shut it down.

I think the bloodshed and violence needs to reach the wealthy people who make all of our decisions for us. As of now they all live above us and well protected and safe neighborhoods. It is becoming obvious that they need to feel the pain also… Or they will never understand what they are putting the rest of the population through.

Thanks for letting it by, Kym. I am not advocating violence. But unfortunately I do believe that the idea that things might get violent can be a motivating force for decency. Yes- that is a very thin line and I’m not sure how to communicate it well…I respect that you will not allow the condoning of violence on your news site. I don’t mean to undermine that.
I personally believe that the uber-wealthy need to see some guillotines rolled out into view. Not used! But just to see them and contemplate what happens when things go bad. It might shake them into better behavior…we can only hope! We all prefer a velvet revolution, not a bloodbath

1994
November 08
Proposition 187 is approved in California On November 8, 1994, 59 percent of California voters approve Proposition 187, banning undocumented immigrants from using the state’s major public services. Despite its wide margin of victory, the ballot measure never takes effect. The court overturned the people.

Oh the poor fellow is just mis understood. Theres no need to speak of harsh punishment. You will get edited. After all when he stabbed. He only meant to deter his victem. Not actually harm him. Sorry. As a person who lost a child to these. Silly mis understood lil knuckleheads. Its hard not to realize. This current encouraging of lawlessness and violence. Our rediculous politically correct. Legal system. And second amendment squashing media. Is emplamenting. Does not work. For citizens that dont want to live by prison / street rules. When the pendulum swings back the woke are going to be suprised…. The japanese. Once thought america was a push over. And clearly the libs arent even that wise?

“…Zambrano and two other adults punched, kicked, and stabbed a 16-year-old juvenile at Ukiah’s Vinewood park…”
I used to play at that park when I was a kid and lived less than a block away over on Magnolia. It was a decent area back then but I haven’t been there for several years so I have no idea how it is now.
