A 34-year-old man was assaulted on Saturday, June 5 at approximately 11:03 a.m. in a fight in front of a residence on Roswell Drive near Canton Drive in Milpitas. The suspects hit the victim with a metal object. A witness then reported seeing the suspects flee in a blue 1990 Ford Thunderbird coupe. Officers responded to the area, and an officer saw the suspect vehicle traveling southbound on Piedmont Road south of Yosemite Drive. A high-risk investigative stop of the suspect vehicle was conducted. Three suspects namely Jimmy George Copas Sr., 48-year-old resident of San Jose; Jimmy George Copas Jr., 21-year-old resident of San Jose and Tristan Ryan Martinez, 19-year-old resident of San Jose were detained.
The victim, a Milpitas resident apparently knew the suspects as acquaintances, and there might have been a prior dispute between the parties. He sustained moderate injuries, was treated at a local hospital and later released. The three suspects were booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for conspiracy and for assault with a deadly weapon.
