Campbell Man Arrested in Connection with Two Alleged Battery Incidents

Campbell Police have announced the arrest of an area man in connection with two alleged battery incidents.

In a press release, police identified Nicholas Hostetler, 25, as the primary suspect in once incident on May 24, and a second, earlier alleged incident on Saturday, May 4.

On May 24, officers responded to the area of Inwood Drive and Elam Avenue to investigate a report of battery. Officers learned that, two hours earlier, a 75-year-old man had allegedly been punched in the face while out for a walk.

The victim and their family returned to the area later to search for surveillance cameras and encountered Hofstetler again, police said. Hofstetler allegedly tried to fight the family before leaving the area.

On Saturday morning, May 25, officers located and arrested Hostetler.

Hostetler was booked at the Santa Clara County jail on suspicion of elder abuse, as well as battery on an officer for allegedly kicking an officer during booking.
