PRESS RELEASE – Police Investigation -Suspect in custody.

Date of Occurrence: February 17, 2024
Time: 11:01 a.m.
Incident: Police Investigation
Location: 1000 block of Kiely Blvd.
Case Number: 2402170029

On Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 11:01 a.m., Santa Clara Police Department (SCPD) officers responded to the report of a domestic disturbance near the 1000 block of Kiely Blvd in Santa Clara, Ca. Officers received initial information that the suspect assaulted a family member and left his residence on foot. They received updated information that the suspect armed himself with several knives prior to leaving the residence.

SCPD officers located the suspect south of the 1000 block of Kiely Blvd. The suspect was still armed with knives and did not comply with the officers’ orders to drop them. The officers attempted verbal de-escalation tactics and the suspect did not comply. Officers deployed less lethal devices to take the suspect into custody and they were ineffective. During the incident, one round was fired at the suspect by a SCPD officer. The suspect was not struck. The suspect was ultimately taken into custody after a brief struggle. He was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. The suspect remains in police custody.

This remains an active and open investigation. The investigation is preliminary and the motive is unknown at this time. Witnesses to the incident or anyone with evidence and/or information are asked to contact Detective Hagg at 408-615-4814 or email him at [email protected]

Alternatively, those who wish to remain nameless can leave a message on the SCPD Anonymous Tip Line at (408) 615-4TIP (4847).
