A 24 year-old Salinas man could face up to 2 years behind bars when he is sentenced next month. Omar Mendez-Sanchez was found guilty of hitting two 9 year-olds with a belt, after one of them hit Mendez-Sanchez with water from a squirt gun while the kids were playing at an apartment complex in Salinas last June.
King City police officers are investigating a Monday night shooting in which a 44 year-old man suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The 5:45 p.m. incident took place on the 100 block of River Drive. Anyone with information about the shooting, or the shooter, is encouraged to contact the King City Police Department.
The 12 year-old King City girl, who posted a recent threat that she was going to “shoot down the school” on Instagram, won’t face charges. The King City Police Chief said the girl will probably serve probation, but not be incarcerated….because she realized what a bad mistake it was (and took the post down almost immediately)….and was remorseful.
A plan, that would keep the Salinas Homeless Shelter open for at least 5 more months, only needs 2 more groups to ok it. Salinas City Leaders, and the board of directors for the Franciscan Workers Of Junipero, need to approve an agreement that Monterey County Supervisors unanimously ok’d today. If approved, expanded services would begin May 30th , and run through October 30th, of this year.
A man was arrested this afternoon near the Capitola Mall. That after he threatened someone with a gun during a road-rage incident. No one was injured, and the suspect was booked into Santa Cruz County Jail.
