Redwood City man arrested for allegedly beating another to death
June 11, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

A 53-year-old man allegedly beat another man to death in unincorporated Redwood City on Monday night, San Mateo County sheriff’s officials said Tuesday.

The San Mateo County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim as Michael Anthony Gonzales, a 46-year-old Redwood City resident.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of two men fighting on the 3100 block of Middlefield Road at about 8:15 p.m., according to sheriff’s Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they found Gonzales lying motionless on the ground with his alleged assailant, Paul Ahern, standing nearby, Rosenblatt said.

Deputies administered CPR but they were unable to revive the victim, a Redwood City resident, Rosenblatt said.

It appears Ahern and the victim knew each other as they were possibly seen drinking together prior to the attack, Rosenblatt said.

Deputies arrested Ahern, a Redwood City resident, on suspicion of murder, according to Rosenblatt.

The San Mateo County Coroner’s Office has not yet publicly released the victim’s identity.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Irfan Zaidi at (650) 363-4192 or the anonymous tip line at (800) 547-2700.
