Three Peninsula men face charges of assault, robbery in Daly City beatdown

Three young Peninsula men face felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon, infliction of great bodily injury and robbery in connection with an incident last week where they allegedly beat up an acquaintance of one of the men before robbing him in Daly City, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Eugenio Perez Corleto, 21, of South San Francisco; Zachary Norman Guyton, 23, of Foster City; and Ian Anthony Mitchell, 24, of Redwood City, pleaded not guilty to the charges Friday in connection with the Jan. 27 incident where the victim, an acquaintance of Corleto, was beaten so badly that he needed 13 staples to close a major head wound, Wagstaffe said.

In that incident, the victim was walking down a street in Daly City about 1:30 a.m. when he reportedly received a call from Corleto asking where he was. The victim told him his location and Corleto said he was on his way. A few minutes later, a car pulled up behind driven by Guyton, Wagstaffe said. Corleto and Mitchell were both in the car along with a woman.

The victim got in the car and they drove a few blocks before pulling into an empty parking lot, Wagstaffe said. Once there, it is alleged Corleto and Mitchell got out of the car and pulled the victim out of the car and began punching him in the head until he fell to the ground.

The men are then alleged to have kicked the victim until he lost consciousness.

A witness who saw part of the beating from her bedroom window said she saw the two men beating the victim and that at one point, the driver got out and allegedly kicked the victim once after he was on the ground.

When the victim woke up, he found that he was missing his wallet, driver's license, 30 oxycodone pills and $500, Wagstaffe said. All three suspects were later apprehended and arrested.

They appeared in court Friday and were appointed legal representation, Wagstaffe said. They pleaded not guilty to the charges and remain in custody on $100,000 bail, on condition of no contact with the victim.

The suspects are scheduled to return to court Feb. 10 at 2 p.m.
