Pair to trial for neck slashing
May 29, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Brenden Hobson

Jason Spears

Two men arrested for slashing the neck of a man at a San Carlos house party who arrived with one’s ex-girlfriend will stand trial for mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon.

Brenden Leonard Hobson, 23, of San Carlos, and Jason Spears, 21, of Redwood City, have pleaded not guilty but was held to answer on the charges after a preliminary hearing. They return to court June 13 for Superior Court arraignment and to potentially set a jury trial date.

The two men encountered the 22-year-old Foster City victim at a party on the 400 block of Laurel Avenue around 3:30 a.m. July 18. The victim was with Hobson’s ex-girlfriend and Hobson reportedly challenged the man to a fight. Spears and two others jumped in to help Hobson who slashed the man’s neck and face with a letter opener, according to the District Attorney’s Office. Spears reportedly punched him in the face.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Spears at the scene but Hobson fled and later surrendered.

Both remain free from custody on $50,000 bail each.
