Martin Perez, Jr. Wanted for Alleged Attempted Murder in Jurupa Valley

Deputies say Martin Perez Jr. may be in San Bernardino.

Authorities in Riverside County are actively searching for Martin Perez Jr., a 30-year-old man wanted for attempted murder after he allegedly fired at a deputy sheriff during an attempted traffic stop last week.

The incident began just after 6 p.m. when a motor deputy from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO) attempted to stop Perez near Wineville and Limonite avenues in the Jurupa Valley, according to an RCSO news release. Instead of complying, Perez sped away, leading the deputy on a chase.

Perez turned onto a dirt access road adjacent to 68th Street, west of Pats Ranch Road, where he reportedly fired at the pursuing deputy. The chase continued until Perez drove into dense foliage near the Jurupa Valley Santa Ana River bottom. There, he abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot in an unknown direction.

Fortunately, the deputy was not injured in the shooting.

Perez is considered armed and dangerous. He is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing around 260 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. His last known address is in San Bernardino County.

Authorities are urging anyone with information about Perez’s whereabouts or any details that might assist in his capture to contact the Jurupa Valley Station Sheriff’s investigators at 951-955-2654.
