POLICE REPORT: Police arrest four following house party assault

Adam Jensen

Police arrested four teenagers just after midnight on Saturday after they allegedly attacked party-goers with a knife at a residence on Utah Avenue.

Jose Nazario, 18, Martin Medina, 18, and two 16-year-old boys were arrested in connection with the assault, said Lt. David Stevenson.

Police believe the group was upset about being kicked out of the house party earlier in the evening and returned with weapons, Stevenson said.

Party-goers suffered bumps and bruises from the attack, but it does not appear anyone was stabbed during the incident, said Hans Uthe, El Dorado County Assistant District Attorney.

Superior Court Judge Suzanne Kingsbury arraigned Nazario and Medina on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit a crime, making criminal threats and dissuading a witness Thursday afternoon.

The men are being held in El Dorado County Jail in South Lake Tahoe.

The juveniles in the case are expected to be arraigned on felony charges Friday, Uthe said.

An 8-month-old was taken to Barton Memorial Hospital with unknown injuries following a car crash about 12:50 a.m. on Monday, said Lt. David Stevenson.

The infant, a San Francisco resident, was a passenger in a car involved in a crash where a vehicle failed to yield to oncoming traffic while making a left hand turn into the Raley’s shopping center at the ‘Y” from Emerald Bay Road, Stevenson said.

Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 27-year-old Santa Rosa man about 3 a.m. on Feb. 12 after he became combative at Opal, inside MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa.

The man was allegedly behind ropes inside of the club “protecting” go-go dancers at the club, according to a deputy’s report.

He allegedly refused when repeatedly asked by security personnel to leave and threatened to “knock out” deputies who responded to the scene, according to the report.

The man allegedly continued to resist as deputies took him into custody, kicking out the back window of a patrol car, and causing an estimated $500 in damage, according to the report.

The man was booked into Douglas County’s Stateline Jail on suspicion of trespassing, destruction of property and resisting arrest.
