A De Anza student was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and hit-and-run with serious injury Tuesday, Jan. 14.

Joshua Lovell, 27, is in police custody after he hit a 22-year-old male student with his car in De Anza’s Lot A Parking at approximately 6:15 p.m.

According to the police report from the Foothill- De Anza District Police, Lovell got into an argument with the victim. As the victim and his friend walked away, Lovell and a female passenger got into a ‘98 Mercury sedan and drove at the men at a speed of 25 mph and hit the victim.

The victim was struck by the front bumper and rolled onto the hood hitting the windshield. After hitting him, Lovell left the scene, according to the report.

A witness positively identified Lovell later that evening outside his Santa Clara home where he was arrested by an FHDA police officer.

Lovell was transported to the Santa Clara County Main Jail where he was booked. Lovell was to remain in jail until his court appearance on Jan. 17, after La Voz went to print. His bail was set at $50,000.

The victim was taken to Valley Medical Center where he was treated for a broken nose, bruises on his shins and cuts to his nose and upper lip.
