California Man Charged With Attempted Murder and Assault With Deadly Weapon in Two Separate Incidents

  • Aqweel Khan of Fremont intentionally rammed a neighbor with his car earlier this month, and in August, he punched a female in an unprovoked incident.

A California man has been charged with attempted murder by repeatedly hitting a victim with his vehicle earlier this month. Additionally, Aqweel Khan of Fremont has been charged for an August assault, the police announced in a press release on Dec. 17.

According to the press release, Khan, 45, intentionally struck a man who was walking to his apartment. “The victim suffered major injuries to his legs and body as a result of Khan ramming his vehicle repeatedly into him,” the press release said. The victim told the police that as he was walking to his apartment, he noticed his neighbor driving toward him in the parking lot. He then struck him with his vehicle and pinned him against a parked vehicle. The victim stated he had an ongoing dispute with this neighbor, and this was not the first time the neighbor had tried to run him over. “The victim was transported to a regional trauma center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries,” the press release added.

A Sacramento police surveillance team located Khan in the city of Mather and he was arrested on charges of attempted homicide and assault with a deadly weapon.

Detectives noticed Khan’s appearance was similar to a police sketch made of an unknown suspect in an unprovoked battery investigation on Aug. 26, at Central Park in Fremont.

According to police, during that incident a suspect yelled and cursed at the victim, “You’re not supposed to talk to your brother like that,” in English and Hindi. The suspect then punched the victim in the face multiple times and threw her phone into the lake.

Detectives had been investigating the incident as a felony battery while also exploring the possibility of a hate crime charge. Detectives questioned Khan regarding the Central Park battery and obtained a full confession.
