Police have arrested a man who they said attacked a street vendor in San Jose Saturday morning.
The incident occurred near the 1400 block of Old Bayshore Highway around 10:40 a.m.
A food vendor said he was attacked with a baseball bat by an employee of nearby business Intex Auto Parts, police said.
After investigating, officers arrested a 43-year-old man for assault with a deadly weapon. Police said the suspect also tried to move the victim’s car by force, so police added an attempted carjacking charge.
The victim did not want to receive medical attention, the extent of his injuries are unknown.
This is the second attack on a food vendor in San Jose in the last few days.
A man selling hot dogs outside the SAP Center Thursday was brutally beaten by a man who demanded free food.
