A San Jose man is in custody today after being arrested on suspicion of participating in an April 7 gang-related killing, police said.
Ernesto Daniel Chavez, 22, was arrested by federal agents on May 22 at the Port of Calexico on the Mexican border, police announced today. Chavez is suspected of murdering 22-year-old Joseph Michael Robidoux-Cadle on April 7 in San Jose. He is being held in Santa Clara County Jail, police said.
Three other men have also been arrested for the killing. On the day of the murder, police responded shortly after 4 p.m. to reports of a stabbing in the 1800 block of Sarasota Way, where they found Robidoux-Cadle suffering multiple stab wounds and blunt-force injuries. Police believe Robidoux-Cadle had been walking when the suspects got out of their vehicle, chased him and attacked him. Robidoux-Cadle was pronounced dead at the scene at about 4:20 p.m.
With information from witnesses, police located the suspects’ car — a white 1993 Acura Integra — in the 1500 block of June Avenue, not far from the crime scene. Around 11:15 p.m. that day, police arrested three suspects: Francisco Bartolo Chavez, 23; Filiberto Barreto Lopez, 20; and Alain Calvillo, 20. The suspects, all San Jose residents, were taken into custody in the area of South King and Story roads. Lopez and Chavez were arrested on suspicion of murder, while Cavillo was booked on suspicion of being an accessory to murder.
