Suspect wanted in domestic abuse case

Casey was arrested twice in three days at his apartment on Willow Street in San Jose

SANTA CLARA COUNTY – 37-year-old Eddie Casey was arrested in February and released under $30,000 bail. But he failed to appear for his sentencing hearing, forfeiting his bail, which would require him to serve jail time on his sentence for allegations of domestic violence incident under PC 273.5 – inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or co-habitant, which occurred on Saturday, February  7 in an apartment at 880 Willow Street in San Jose. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

According to court documents, the assault was a dispute between Casey and the victim, who was in a dating relationship with him for more than a year-and-a-half. The victim received minor injuries to her hands and neck. According to the arresting officer, Casey grabbed the female victim by the throat, placing her in a choke hold and then twisting her fingers.

An argument had erupted between the pair when Casey told the female victim that he was tired and that he didn’t want her to make any noise while he was trying to rest. The victim told police that “The suspect had placed her in a choke hold using his right arm.” The horrified victim detailed the attack as Casey waited in hand-cuffs for further investigation into the incident.

The victim told investigating officers that Casey had placed his right bicep around her neck. “The suspect then used his left hand to apply pressure and hold his grip.” The victim told them that in order to fight back she clawed at his arms adversely, causing him to remove his grip and grab onto her fingers, twisting them.

During the initial contact with San Jose Police the victim was offered an Emergency Protective Restraining Order (EPRO), but she refused.

Casey was taken into custody at the scene and booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on $30,000 bail. However, for his failure to appear in court for sentencing on Friday, November 6, a no-bail warrant was issued for his arrest and forfeiture of bail. He may incur additional costs for his failure to appear unless he turns himself in without being arrested by police for the offences.

Back in February, just three days after the domestic violence arrest, Casey was taken into custody again on charges of burglary, possession of stolen property, marijuana for sales, and ammunition by a prohibited person. San Jose police reported arresting him at his home on Willow Street at 1:30 in the afternoon on Tuesday, February 10. He reported his occupation as a plumber.
