Father fights off gang members in Grover Beach

Cal Coast News | January 9, 2011

Two gang members required medical treatment after a father fought to protect his family during an alleged random assault by three members of a Santa Maria gang at Grover Beach Elementary School on Saturday.

“It is not unusual to see someone who is not associated with a gang assaulted by gang members,” said Grover Beach Police Sgt. Chris Sweeton. “A lot of time gangs don’t discriminate, they pick fights if they see someone in their area.”

At about 5:20 p.m., five members of a Grover Beach family, two adult males and three children ages 3, 9 and 15, were walking through the school grounds when a 14-year-old gang member challenged the 15-year-old to a fight. After the two adult family members attempted to stop the fight, Anthony Mayo, 19, of Grover Beach allegedly attacked them.

During the assault, the three assailants identified themselves as members of a Santa Maria gang.

The father injured Mayo and the Santa Maria teen as he fought to protect his children. The three suspects fled after being told that police were on their way.

Police arrested Mayo and the Santa Maria teen at Arroyo Grande Community Hospital where they were being treated for injuries suffered during the fight. Police are not identifying the teen because he is a juvenile.
