SACRAMENTO, CA - A man on a bike was sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison for two violent attacks on victims in south Sacramento two years ago.
Jose Camilo was convicted of attempted murder and carjacking in the March 30, 2011 crimes, the Sacramento County District Attorney's office reports.
Camilo was on his bike at Florin and Power Inn roads when he deliberately ran into the side of a car waiting at the intersection, got into the passenger side of the vehicle and beat on the 51-year-old driver, according to court documents. She was forced out of her car and Camilo got behind the wheel.
Per court records, the defendant drove recklessly through a nearby neighborhood, made a U-turn when he saw a woman walking with her young daughter and steered the car onto the sidewalk and into the woman. He stopped the car and confronted the woman whose daughter was trying to pull her behind a neighbor who had come out to see what was happening. At that point, Camilo got back into the stolen car and fled.
