Beer bottle assault in San Mateo leads to stabbings
July 11, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

Two men were stabbed early Sunday morning near a 7-Eleven in downtown San Mateo after a man was struck by a beer bottle by one of the stabbing victims, according to police.

Police responded to the area of the Delaware Center on the 600 block of East Third Avenue on a reported disturbance and found a 36-year-old San Mateo man had been struck by a beer bottle just before 2 a.m.

Police then received an additional call of a stabbing in the area moments later.

One of the stabbing victims, later identified as 30-year-old Jesus Miranda Vasquez, received non life-threatening injuries, and an associate, a 23-year-old man from San Mateo, received what appeared at the time to be a life-threatening injury, according to police.

San Mateo police reviewed available video surveillance to determine the sequence of events and determined the suspect of the beer bottle assault, Vasquez, fled the scene with another person.

They were chased by Carlos Joel Colon, a 23-year-old San Mateo resident, who then allegedly stabbed Vasquez and his associate, according to police.

Colon was identified and arrested Tuesday and was booked into San Mateo County Jail on a charge of attempted murder for the stabbing.

Stabbing victim Vasquez was identified as the person who committed the beer bottle assault during the initial incident near the 7-Eleven. He was booked into San Mateo County Jail on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, according to police.

About the same time that morning, police also responded to a report of two men, aged 18 and 22, who were attacked by several suspects near North Railroad and Monte Diablo avenues, according to police.

The victims received injuries that are not life-threatening and items of value were taken from them, according to police.

Later Sunday night, a 49-year-old San Mateo man was accosted by three men in their 20s while walking over the pedestrian overcrossing at Monte Diablo Avenue and Highway 101. The premise of the assault was robbery, although nothing was ultimately stolen, according to police.
