Deigo Edeza (23) was jogging Southbound on N. Main St. at Boronda Rd. A 19-year old male and his 5-year old brother were walking Northbound on N. Main St and began to pass Edeza. For unknown reasons, Edeza stopped and spit on the 19-year old. Words were exchanged so Edeza spit on the victim again and then kicked the 5-year old in the abdomen causing the child to fall backward into traffic. The child was able to get to his feet and get to the sidewalk before he was struck by passing cars. He was not injured and based on witness statements, it appears the attack was unprovoked. Edeza was booked into Monterey County Jail for felony Child Abuse and Battery.
