On Monday, May 30, 2011, San Jose police arrested two San Jose juveniles, 16- and 17-years-old, on suspicion of severely beating and robbing a 31-year-old San Jose man in the 2600 block of Nuestra Castillo Court.
Officers investigating a reported single-vehicle hit-and-run collision on the lightrail tracks at South Capitol and Wilbur avenues arrested the suspects as they fled from the scene of the collision. While investigating the traffic collision, a passerby reported to the officers that a man was lying in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 2600 block of Nuestra Castillo Court, unconscious and with apparent severe head and facial injuries.
During the investigation, officers found one of the suspects in possession of the victim’s property. The investigation also revealed the suspects had stolen the vehicle in which they had collided, a 1997 Honda Civic passenger car, from the same apartment complex parking lot.
The victim was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries, where he currently remains hospitalized. The victim is expected to make a full recovery.
Investigators are looking into the possibility that the suspects perpetrated a similar robbery, in the same location, on Sunday, 5/29/11, around midnight (Case #11-149-0020). In that case, officers responded to a report of a person lying in the parking lot of the apartment complex in the 2600 block of Nuestra Castillo Court, while unconscious.
The victim, a 29-year-old Mountain View resident, was visiting when he was assaulted and severely beaten by unknown suspect(s), rendering him unconscious. The victim was taken to Regional Medical Center in San Jose, where he was treated for non-life-threatening head and facial injuries and released.
