Gang-related assault leads to two arrests

September 25, 2008

Two teenage boys were arrested Tuesday afternoon, accused of taking part in a gang-related beating of a victim in Gilroy.

Gilroy police received a report of a fight at about 12:55 p.m. in an alley near the 7300 block of Church Street, and upon arrival, officers arrested the two 17-year-old suspects.

The victim, who was contacted by police at a local hospital, said that he was attacked by the two teens and hit over the head with a blunt object.

Officers located a hydraulic arm from a vehicle’s hatchback near the scene of the attack, and believe that was the weapon used to strike the victim, police said.

One suspect, found with a screwdriver, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a deadly weapon, violation of probation, and blankault with a deadly weapon. The other suspect was also arrested on suspicion of blankault with a deadly weapon.

Police believe the blankault was gang-related based on statements apparently made prior to the blankault and physical evidence on the scene.

The victim was expected to be treated and released from a local hospital, according to police.
