San Mateo Boys On Bikes Chased By Truck, 2 Arrested

SAN MATEO (CBS SF) — Two people suspected of chasing two boys on bicycles with a pickup truck in San Mateo on Sunday afternoon were arrested that day, police said.

Police responded to reports that the driver of a gold pickup truck was trying to hit the bicyclists near the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Grant Street at 3:45 p.m.

The truck’s driver drove the vehicle at the bicyclists, forcing one of the juvenile males to jump off the bicycle before the truck drove over the bike and onto the sidewalk, police said.

KCBS’ Jeffrey Schaub Reports:

The two victims were uninjured. Witnesses described the incident to officers, leading police to locate a pickup truck suspected of being the same truck used to chase the bicyclists.

Police arrested San Mateo residents Jason Hernandez-Lopez, 24, and Dian Burton, 31, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy. They were booked into San Mateo County Jail.
