Fallbrook man arrested today in connection with Carlsbad break-in

CARLSBAD - A second man suspected of involvement in a violent Carlsbad break-in last month was arrested today in Fallbrook, police said.

Jose Ramirez, 19, was taken into custody just before 7 a.m. in the 1000 block of Vanita Street, said Carlsbad police Sgt. Mickey Williams.

On July 24, Ramirez and Robert Aldrete, 21, allegedly broke into a house belonging to Aldrete's neighbor in the 3400 block of Clear Cliff Court and battered the resident, Williams said.

Aldrete, who was stabbed during the altercation, was arrested at a hospital that night, but Ramirez escaped, the sergeant said.

Williams said investigators learned Ramirez was Aldrete's alleged accomplice, and an arrest warrant charging him with robbery, grand theft and battery was issued two weeks ago.

Ramirez was being held at the Vista Detention Facility with bail set at $50,000 bail. No further information has been released yet.
