Sunday June 17th – 3:45 pm -

SMPD Officers responded Sunday afternoon to a report of what appeared to be a pickup truck trying to hit bicyclists in the area of 4th Avenue and Grant Street. Eyewitnesses reported that two suspects occupying a gold colored pickup truck were harassing two male juveniles on bicycles, and drove the vehicle at the bicyclists. One of the bicyclists jumped off of his bicycle to avoid being struck, and the truck drove over the bicycle and onto the sidewalk towards the juvenile.

The two juveniles were located uninjured. Based on detailed witness information, officers located the suspect vehicle in San Mateo and identified the suspects as Jason Hernandez-Lopez (age 24, of San Mateo) and Dian Burton (age 31, of San Mateo). Hernandez-Lopez and Burton were arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon (vehicle) and Conspiracy. They were booked into San Mateo County Jail.

Immediate calls and very specific witness information quickly relayed to SMPD were critical in the success of this case.
