A $100,000 felony warrant has been issued for a man suspected of stabbing an acquaintance during an argument in a Hooters restaurant parking lot in Campbell earlier this week. San Jose resident William Zachary Bettencourt, 37, is considered to be armed and dangerous and police suspect he stabbed a man in the parking lot around 2:15 p.m. at 1555 S. Bascom Ave. on Sunday, Sgt. Gary Berg said. The two probably did not come to the restaurant together but knew each other and had started arguing, Berg said. They agreed to take it outside but the quarrel turned physical in the back of the parking lot when Bettencourt allegedly stabbed the man in the upper torso. Berg said the man who was stabbed was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive. Police are asking anyone who has information about incident or about Bettencourt’s whereabouts to call the Police Department at (408) 866-2101.
