SUSPECTS: Kevin Granados, 43-year-old resident of Yucaipa

VICTIM: Confidential

SUMMARY: On Tuesday, September 19, 2017, deputies responded to a reported domestic violence investigation. When deputies arrived, they found Kevin Granados on top of the roof of a residence. Granados poured lighter fluid on several areas of the roof and had a cigarette lighter in his hand, threatening to burn the house down. Several attempts were made to convince Granados to come down and speak with deputies, but he refused. Deputies attempted to place a fire department ladder on the side of the house, but Granados pushed it off.

While deputies were speaking with Granados from the front of the house, other deputies were able to climb a fire ladder from the back. As the first deputy reached the top rung of the ladder, Granados charged towards him to push him off the roof. The deputy was able to get on the roof and avoid being pushed off. Additional deputies assisted and were able to take Granados into custody. One deputy sustained minor injuries during the incident. The deputy was treated at the scene by fire personnel and released.

Granados was transported to West Valley Detention Center where he was booked for Attempt Murder, Attempt Arson, Criminal Threats and Resisting an Executive Officer. He is being held in lieu of $1,000,000.00 bail.
