Three Norteno gang members challenged three Sureno gang members to a fight at 6:50 p.m. on April 9, according to the Mountain View Police Department. Police determined, based on witness accounts of what happened, that the three Norteno gang members threw glass bottles at the victims, according to police Sgt. Saul Jaeger. There were no injuries.
Eric Castro, 20, from San Jose and Ernesto Sanchez, 20, from Sunnyvale were booked into San Jose Main Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon. The juvenile was booked into Juvenile Hall on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
Jaeger said gang activity generally increases during the summer months, and that gang members can be seen in and around local parks. As part of the "see something, say something" campaign, the police department encourages the community to report any suspicious activity.
