Driver Crashes Into San Jose Walmart And Attacks Customers

SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Four Walmart customers were injured in San Jose Sunday morning after a suspect crashed a vehicle into the store and started assaulting people, a San Jose police spokesman said.

Officers first responded to a report of a vehicle that drove into a Walmart store at 777 Story Road at about 11:15 a.m., Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.

The driver of the vehicle immediately got out of the vehicle, picked up a blunt object from inside the store and began to physically assault customers, Dwyer said.

One victim was seriously injured and taken to a hospital, he said.

Three others victims suffered less serious injuries and were also hospitalized, Dwyer said.

The suspect was arrested by responding police officers and booked into Santa Clara County jail.

The incident remains under investigation by San Jose police, who were not releasing further details as of early Sunday afternoon.
