On July 12, a teen reported finding blood and signs of an attack inside the RV of a family member parked along Crisanto, according to police. Officers tracked down the 19-year-old victim at a nearby hospital, who told police that two males came in and struck him in the face with pistols multiple times, causing injuries to his face and hands.
The teen who reported the incident told police that he was accosted multiple times in the area that evening, according to the statement. He said people inside a Chrysler sedan and a Honda sedan attempted to attack him near Ortega Park, and he was later accosted and threatened by a teenager in the parking lot at Rengstorff Park.
On July 14, officers responding to reports of a person with a gun spotted a Chrysler near Rengstorff Park that matched the description of the vehicle, according to the statement. Police stopped the car and found two firearms matching the description of the guns used in the attack, and arrested all three people inside: Rosas and the two minors.
One of the teens is facing a long list of potential charges, including assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, brandishing a firearm, criminal threats and other gang- and weapons-related charges.
The other teen was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed firearm in a car and carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle in a public place, according to the statement.
Police later arrested a fourth suspect, Ibarra-Vallejo, after the victim in the RV attack identified him as one of the suspects, police spokeswoman Katie Nelson said. He was arrested at his home on the 1000 block of Space Park Way on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, brandishing a firearm and gang-related charges.
Neither the victim nor the suspects have been identified as people living in the RVs along Crisanto Avenue, Nelson said, though the victim knows people who live inside one of the RVs.
The Santa Clara County District Attorney's office filed three felony charges against Rosas and Ibarra-Vallejo, including one count of assault with a firearm and first-degree burglary — both of which were determined to be crimes committed with intent to benefit other gang members — as well as one count of making criminal threats, according to prosecutor Neil Layton.
Rosas is facing three additional felony charges: unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle and possessing a large capacity magazine.
Both men made an appearance in court on Wednesday, July 25, but neither entered a plea during the proceeding.
Rosas and Ibarra-Vallejo are being held in Santa Clara County's Elmwood Correctional facility with bail set at $325,000 and $275,000, respectively.
