About 11:15 last night, the occupants of a residence in the 2700 block of Sunnyside Avenue were confronted in their home by several armed suspects. A physical disturbance between one of the residents and one suspect ensued, and the resident sustained minor injuries. Neighbors, hearing the disturbance, went to the aid of the victims and chased several suspects on foot from the victim’s yard.
The suspects were chased to the area of Sierra Vista Parkway and Santa Ana, while the police department received several calls of “shots fired” in the area. The suspects fled in a vehicle and a witness gave police a description and direction of travel. Officers responded to the scene and located the vehicle leaving the area and detained the five occupants.
All five suspects were arrested for a variety of charges including conspiracy to commit home invasion, assault with a deadly weapon, attempted homicide, criminal threats, false imprisonment, conspiracy, kidnapping, weapons charges and gang enhancements. A stolen firearm was recovered during the investigation. In custody are 21-year-old Charles Mao, 26-year-old Victor Pech, 20-year-old Timmy My, 20-year-old Kevin Pech and 20-year-old Johnny Pech. All five are being transported to the Fresno County Jail.
