A man reportedly in his 50s was found bleeding from the head in the street on the 2300 block of Holly Drive at 11:23 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 28.

When police arrived, the man was conscious and receiving care from nearby residents.

Officers entered a residence on the block. Witnesses said a heavyset Latino man with no shirt and tattoos was seen jumping over a fence in the rear of the property. It’s believed that the man had a handgun, according to the police log.

Officers from the Tracy police special investigations unit were called to the residence because unknown drugs were found inside. Surveillance equipment was also reportedly installed at the home.

The victim was transported to an undisclosed hospital for a possible fractured skull, the police log states.

Calls to the Tracy police on Monday, Oct. 1, seeking more details about the alleged crime were not returned by 5:30 p.m. that day.

I could never understand why a man would injure a woman or why any women feel they need to jump one single female.

They must of been in fear for their cowardly lives from this one person or bottom feeders.

But the THREE MEN that joined in the beating are lower than scum they should be locked up in an asylum never to be heard from again.

Just my opinion

(1 that has been beaten by a COWARDLY MAN ONCE, twice my SIZE - ONE (1) time. NEVER saw him AGAIN)

It's bad enough to have 10 against one with females fighting (guess they were too afraid to fight her one on one)... but to know that THREE guys also were beating on ONE female.... WOW -- they must be so proud of themselves. What losers they all are!!!!!! These are the scum that need to leave Tracy.

It's hard to imagine that the police we 'unable to locate anyone when they arrived'. Is it me or does anyone else notice this patter with the police department? When reading the police log's more than half of the crimes reported the ending statements to them are "Unable to locate suspect" Or "suspect fled the scene befor police arrived" When you think of 13 people both men and woman jumping one single female that took some time and why we'nt the police there in a more timely fashion!!!!! Unbeliveable!!! Just say'en!
