A Woodside man fled into a neighbor's house after he was attacked with a shovel Wednesday afternoon (Dec. 12), according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office. The suspect was later Tased by sheriff's deputies while he was taken into custody.
The Sheriff's Office first learned of the incident when an alarmed neighbor on Brookwood Road called to report an intruder in the house at 2:05 p.m.
The man who had fled into the house told deputies that his relative, identified as Milo Imrie, 23, of Richmond, a veteran with combat training, had hit him in the back with a shovel near his home in the area of 150 Wildwood Way, sheriff's spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said.
The victim was treated for injuries at the scene.
The Sheriff's Office had issued a warning to residents that the perpetrator could still be in the area with the shovel and was potentially dangerous.
Deputies searched the neighborhood and found the suspect at about 4:20 p.m. in the 2300 block of Woodside Road. When deputies tried to take him into custody, he resisted, and deputies used a Taser to subdue him, Rosenblatt said.
Imrie was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injures. No deputies were injured in the incident.
Imrie, who is undergoing psychiatric evaluation at the hospital, is expected to be booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Rosenblatt said.
