A 45-year-old man from Fremont on suspicion of deliberately running over a neighbor with his car earlier this month and hitting a woman last August at a local park has been arrested in Tuolomne County, police say .

Aqweel Khan was arrested on December 9 in Mather on suspicion of attempted homicide and assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the December 6 incident in the 41000 block of Fremont Boulevard.

The man allegedly struck his neighbor with a vehicle, pinning him against a parked car, then reversed and punched him several times before walking away. Surveillance video showed the victim had been struck by a car six times, police said.

The victim, hospitalized with serious but not life-threatening injuries, told police he had an ongoing dispute with Khan and it was not the first time the suspect had pointed his car at him .

After his arrest, detectives noticed that Khan looked like a police sketch of a suspect who allegedly punched a female victim on August 26 in Central Park in Fremont.

During this incident, a suspect allegedly shouted and cursed the victim and told him “you are not supposed to talk to your brother like that”, in English and Hindi. The suspect then allegedly punched the victim in the face several times and threw his phone into Lake Elizabeth, police said.

During questioning by detectives, Khan confessed to the assault in the park, police said.

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office filed charges against Khan last week, including premeditated attempted murder, assault with a lethal weapon with serious bodily harm and assault with the potential to produce serious bodily harm, with an increase in hate crimes.

Anyone with information on investigations related to the suspect is encouraged to contact Detective Mike Gebhardt at (510) 790-6900 or [email protected]
