A 22-year-old man was arrested and booked into Santa Clara County Jail the morning of Monday, Jan. 14 after Los Gatos Monte Sereno police say he was involved in various assault/domestic violence crimes.
According to police, Alejandro Garcia punched and kicked a woman, no age given, at a residence on West Parr Avenue in Los Gatos.
Garcia is also said to have brandished a knife and threatened to kill the woman, police said.
Garcia was booked into jail on suspicion of willfully inflicting upon the woman corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition, which is a felony.
He was also booked on suspicion of willfully threatening to commit a crime which would result in death or great bodily injury to another person, with the specific intent that the statement, made verbally, is to be taken as a threat.
Because police say he brandished a knife, Garcia is accused of a felony for drawing or exhibiting the deadly weapon, which is a misdemeanor and is punishable by imprisonment not less than 30 days.
If found guilty of threatening the woman, Garcia could be punished by imprisonment in county jail not to exceed one year, or by imprisonment in state prison.
If found guilty of beating her, he could face a two-, three-, or four-year state prison term, or up to one year in county jail, or by a fine of up to $6,000, or by both that fine and imprisonment, according to California Penal Code.
