SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) — The San Jose Police Department arrested a man in connection with the assault of a hot dog street vendor outside the SAP Center in February.
On Feb. 18, security at the SAP Center responded to the assault around 11:43 p.m. Multiple witnesses said the assault came after a disagreement over a hot dog.
The street vendor, Saul Reconco, told KRON4 the suspect, Dioscoro Reyes, wanted Reconco to give him a free hot dog or soda after purchasing some hot dogs.
