July 12, 2021 – Santa Barbara, Ca.
It all started on the night of July 10th when downtown Santa Barbara passers-by spotted an unknown man lying in the middle of the street “yelling for help” as described by Santa Barbara Police Department spokesman Lt. Joshua Morton.
Responding SBPD patrol officers rolled up to the scene and discovered a “man with multiple injuries who said he had been tied up and assaulted at his home by several members of his family.” The man further indicated that he had managed to “escape from the residence” just a short distance away. According to Morton, “due to the victim’s statements and injuries, it was believed several felonious acts had been committed against him.”
While the victim was being transported to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for treatement of his injuries, officers dropped in on the victim’s residence which was quickly determined to be “a crime scene” occupied by “possible suspects in the assault.” All individuals in the residence were interviewed at the scene and reported that they were “upset about the victim’s behavior.”
Further investigation indicated that the suspects had indeed “restrained and feloniously assaulted” the victim, whereupon Alfredo Teliz-Jimiez, 41, Santos Teliz-Jiminez, 43, Jose Urbano Teliz, 49, Pedro Juarez, 43, and Samuray Juarez, 21 were all taken into custody and
transported to Santa Barbara County Jail. They were all booked on charges of attempted murder, torture, false imprisonment, and battery with serious injury, with no bail amount specified.
