Man wanted for attempted murder

Lodi police are looking for a Stockton man who they said tried to kill another Stockton man early Saturday morning at a residence in the 700 block of North School Street.

Pharaoh Brooks allegedly hit Mychal Angelo Lewis, with a baseball bat several times on the head and body at about 2:13 a.m., according to police Lt. Bill Barry. Lewis was talking to two females at the time, one of whom called 9-1-1.

Lewis was taken to Lodi Memorial Hospital and transferred to another hospital, where he was in critical condition Sunday afternoon. Barry declined to name the hospital where Lewis is for security reason.

It is believed that Brooks and Lewis know each other, Barry said.

Anyone with information about the case may call Detective Nick Welton at 333-6879. Callers may be eligible for a cash reward by calling Lodi Area Crimestoppers at 333-6771.

Woman jumps onto highway from overpass

A woman Lodi police have yet to identify was seriously injured after jumping off the overpass from Turner Road onto Highway 99 late Friday night, according to Lodi police.

The woman leaped onto the left northbound lane on Highway 99 at about 11:30 p.m., police said. With high-speed traffic approaching, Sgt. Dale Miller placed a highway flare near the woman. There were several near-miss collisions, said Lt. Bill Barry.

The woman was taken to Lodi Memorial Hospital and taken by helicopter to another hospital, Barry said. He didn't know the woman's name, approximate age or what hospital she was taken.

Man arrested in gang beating

Four or five members of the Sureños street gang beat up a 17-year-old male and took his money at Hale Park on East Pine Street, according to Lodi police.

One of the alleged assailants, Hector Contreras, 19, was arrested on suspicion of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and criminal activity by a gang member, police said. The other people involved in the incident got away, police said.

The alleged incident took place at 4:14 p.m. Thursday, while officers were in their third week of extra patrol on Lodi's Eastside to curtail gang activity.

"It's cost us some overtime (pay), but it's worth it," Lt. Bill Barry said.

Man suspected of carrying meth

A 38-year-old parolee and a 16-year-old male were arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of carrying a large amount of methamphetamine while riding through Thornton area's business area, according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department.

Philip Vincent Alviso and the juvenile, whose name was not disclosed, were seen in a car at 12:20 a.m. on Thornton Road near Stockton Street that had a headlight burned out, according to a sheriff's report.

Since Alviso was on parole, deputies searched the vehicle. The juvenile had a bag containing 235 grams of methamphetamine, according to the report. Another six grams of methamphetamine was found in the teenager's pocket, according to the report.

Both were arrested on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine and methamphetamine for sale and transporting methamphetamine, the sheriff's department reported. Alviso was also held on suspicion of violating parole.
