Few details about the incident that led to the arrest of Michael Ramon Ramos were available Monday morning, Assistant Police Chief Craig Hayes said.

“The investigation is ongoing,” he said.

The incident, reported to police at 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the 100 block of South O’Brien Street, involved a woman who is reportedly the mother of Ramos’ children.

“They are separated and have been for some time,” Hayes said.

Ramos was cooperative with police during the investigation being led by Detective Sgt. C.J. Foster, Hayes said. As part of the investigation, police obtained a Jackson Superior Court II warrant that allowed them to search and collect evidence from the residence.

Ramos was booked into the Jackson County Jail at 5:53 p.m. Sunday and was being held without bond pending his initial hearing.

Besides the rape and robbery charges, Ramos also is facing charges of interfering with reporting a crime, intimidation, domestic battery in the presence of a child, criminal confinement and strangulation.
