On September 14, 2005, at about 10:43 A.M., Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 800 Block of Terrace Drive for a report of a woman being assaulted with a large knife. Upon their arrival, they saw the suspect, carrying a big knife, walking away from the area. Deputies attempted to talk to the suspect and repeatedly asked for him to put the knife down. Deputies spoke to the suspect in English and Spanish to no avail.
The suspect advanced towards the Deputies, with the large knife in hand, despite their warnings to place the knife down, which caused the deputies to fire their weapons to stop the suspect.
Deputies immediately rendered first aid to the suspect and called for Fire/Paramedics/AMR for assistance. The suspect and two victims were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for their injuries.
The condition of the suspect and victims is not known at this time. An update will come as soon as it’s available.
The suspect’s name will be released as soon as it becomes available.
This case is still under investigation and updates will be made as soon as they are available.
