A 22-year-old man not wearing a helmet was seriously injured early Sunday morning after his motorcycle crashed at Valley Avenue and Fawnhaven Way in southeast Lodi, according to Lodi police and UC Davis Medical Center officials.
Jose Quevedo, whose residence is unknown, was taken to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento shortly after midnight Sunday, police Sgt. Eric Versteeg. On Monday afternoon, he was in fair condition, the medical center said.
Information was not available regarding how the accident took place.
The crash was one of only three major incidents that took place during the weekend. At 8 p.m. Saturday, a 34-year-old man was injured after being robbed of his bicycle and wallet at South Central Avenue and Hilborn Street, police said.
Several men confronted the man who was riding his bicycle, Versteeg said. In addition to stealing the man’s wallet and bicycle, the suspects broke the man’s wrist and eye socket, Versteeg said. He was taken to Lodi Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Versteeg said the victim is not a gang member, but the suspects may be.
A half-hour later, a 25-year-old man was stabbed in the back because he was wearing red, Versteeg said. The suspects, who police say are from the Sureño gang, tend to wear blue clothing to depict their gang affiliation, Versteeg said.
The 8:30 p.m. stabbing took place in the 300 block of East Locust Street, police said.
The victim, whose injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, was taken to Lodi Memorial Hospital, but he left the hospital against doctor’s orders, Versteeg said. The man who stabbed him got away, but officers have his identity and are looking for him, police said.
