Kidnapping investigation underway following suspicious circumstances

Diridon Station

SAN JOSE — The San Jose Police Department is looking into a possible kidnapping/assault on Sunday evening at the Diridon Station located at 65 Cahill Street in San Jose.

According to San Jose Police Sergeant Enrique Garcia, “On Sunday, October 8, 2017, at about 1:45 AM, a cab driver picked up a white female, 5′ -8″ tall, in her 30s, with brown hair, on Great America Parkway near Tasman Street in Santa Clara.” The female was taken to the Diridon Station. However, it was closed.

During this time, two Hispanic males and two Hispanic females approached the cab and demanded the female exit the cab. It was then that things took a dramatic turn, with the driver trying to escape the scene.

The two Hispanic males began to puncture the tires and attack the driver, stabbing him. The female passenger was then taken by the two Hispanic males, who forced her into their Lexus. The driver suffered non-life threatening wounds from the stabbing and was able to call the police.

Anyone with information to help identify or locate the female and suspects is asked to call “911” or contact Detective Sergeant Jaime Jimenez of the San Jose Police Department’s Robbery Unit at 408-277-4166.

Persons wishing to remain anonymous may either call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line, (408) 947-STOP (7867) or click the “Submit a Tip” link below. Persons providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect may be eligible for a cash reward from the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers.
