Location: 1000 Block of Monroe Street
A local bar on the 1000 block of Monroe Street was well-attended with patrons watching football. A fight broke out and bottles were thrown. A reporting party informed Public Safety Dispatchers that one of the males involved in the fight was said to be armed with a handgun. Three males and two females fled the bar on foot prior to police arrival.
Upon arrival, an officer contacted one victim who had been robbed of a cell phone and glasses by the two female suspects. A perimeter was established which caused local traffic interruptions as streets were blocked off. The San Jose Police Department’s helicopter was already nearby, so SJPD officers provided air support with the search.
The search team located two male suspects hiding to the rear of the Santa Clara County Courthouse and one male suspect hiding behind a house on Lafayette Street and Homestead Road. One of the female suspects was detained as she attempted to walk out of the perimeter. One male and one female subject were arrested and transported to the Santa Clara County Jail.

NOTE: While you have the right to own firearms, effective January 1, 2017, Senate Bill 869 added California Penal Code Section 25140 to California law. Under this new law, you must secure a handgun inside a vehicle before you leave the vehicle unattended.
The handgun must be locked in the trunk of the vehicle, locked in a container with the container placed out of view, or locked in a container that is permanently attached to the vehicle and not in plain view, such as a glove box. This means any person authorized to carry a concealed weapon permit must secure and conceal their firearm in their vehicle, including law enforcement officers. Violating this law could result in an infraction punishable by a fine of up to $1,000.
