Crime briefs: Man rejected for date, attacks woman

Police responded to several incidents this week involving drunk driving, car theft, robbery and assault. Here are a few of those incidents:

Unrequited love leads to alleged attack

After a woman turned down 21-year-old Gerson Martinez for a date, he allegedly picked up an object and struck her in the arm on the 7100 block of Eigleberry Street at 7:51 p.m. on Sept. 24, and proceeded to chase her down an alley with the object, attempting to hit her on the head. When police arrived, Martinez fled but was shortly arrested for assault and taken to Santa Clara County Jail.

Both of her passengers, one of them a minor, had open containers of alcohol in the car. The minor was taken to his or her parents, and Mammini and the adult passenger were taken to the Gilroy Police Station and released with a court date.
