LAPD Mission Division Capt. Todd Chamberlain told us Ramirez's grandfather claimed that he had beat him up, robbed him and took money from him over a two-month period.
About a week ago the grandson came back to his grandfather's place, and the grandfather ended up putting him up at the hotel, he said.
Chamberlain said the suspect has a drug problem and that "he was getting progressively more and more violent."
Ramirez was booked on suspicion of robbery, cops said.
