WOODSIDE (CBS SF) — A man fled into a neighbor’s house from an attack with a shovel by a relative who was later Tased by sheriff’s deputies while he was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office first learned of the incident when the alarmed neighbor on Brookwood Road called to report an intruder in the house at 2:05 p.m.
The Woodside man who had fled into the neighbor’s 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 man was treated for his injuries at the scene.
The sheriff’s office warned residents that the perpetrator could still be in the area with the shovel and was potentially dangerous and they began searching the neighborhood for the attacker.
He was located around 4:20 p.m. in the 2300 block of Woodside Road but when deputies tried to take him into custody, he resisted, and deputies used a Taser to subdue him, Rosenblatt said.
Imrie was transported to a hospital to be treated for his injures.
No deputies were injured in the confrontation.
Imrie is also undergoing psychiatric evaluation in the hospital but is expected to be booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Rosenblatt said.
