At about 11:52 pm Wednesday night, a Turlock Police officer assisting on an unrelated traffic stop at 76 DoubleTime, 101 North Tully Road, Turlock, noticed a wanted man, Juan Jesus Guzman, 19, of Turlock, which he recognized from a recent be on the lookout bulletin from the Merced Police Department getting into the passenger seat of a vehicle.

The driver began driving off and the officer followed the vehicle, conducting a high risk stop in the 300 block of West Avenue South when other officers arrived in the area to assist.

Guzman as well as another man and a woman were removed from the vehicle at gunpoint and detained without further incident.

Guzman’s warrant was confirmed for attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm. He was arrested. The man and woman Guzman was in the vehicle with were eventually released.

Guzman was booked into the Merced County Main Jail on his warrant.

Guzman’s warrant stemmed from an incident that occurred the prior week on Wednesday, June 29th, at Food 4 Less, 1115 West Olive Avenue, Merced. At about 8:26 pm that night, the Merced Police Department was dispatched to a reported aggravated assault that had just occurred at the business.

The victim told officers that while he was attempting to apprehend Guzman who had shoplifted from the business, Guzman got into a scuffle with him and stabbed him with a sharp object. Guzman then fled the area with two others in a blue sedan.

The victim suffered moderate injuries. He is currently in stable condition and expected to recover.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller.

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
