January 27, 2015
A man confronted suspected gang members in Nipomo last week after they poured beer on his car. In response, the men severely beat the victim, leaving him with serious injuries, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident took place on Thursday, and deputies arrested three of four suspects at the scene. The fourth suspect surrendered Tuesday morning after the sheriff’s special enforcement detail and gang task force conducted a search for him at two locations in Nipomo.
Sheriff’s personnel arrested the outstanding suspect, 25-year-old Federico Lazaro, for assault with a deadly weapon, carjacking and conspiracy. He is also charged with a gang enhancement.
Special enforcement detail and gang task force members also detained nine suspects during Tuesday’s search for Lazaro. Five of the detainees were discovered at a location in the 300 block of South Oakglen Avenue and the other four in the 900 block of Calle Fresa.
Authorities served warrants at the two locations around 6:15 a.m. Lazaro surrendered later in the morning in the 100 block of Tefft Street.
A local hospital released the victim after doctors treated him.
