Last Saturday at approximately 11 p.m., Santa Clara Police Department (SCPD) responded to a stabbing report at Normandy House Lounge on 30 Washington St.
SCPD officers detained a male subject at the scene.
Simultaneously, another individual with multiple stab wounds turned up at a local hospital. Authorities linked this victim to an assault behind the lounge.
The initially detained person emerged as the prime suspect in the lounge assault. The alleged assailant is Lorenzo Lopez of Santa Clara.
He has been booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on charges of attempted murder.
The case remains active, with authorities seeking witnesses and any available video evidence or information.
SCPD’s Detective Miranda is spearheading the investigation and can be reached at 408-615-4851 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Decades ago, the Normandy House Lounge was a frequent gathering place after City Council meetings for a former City Councilmember, City Clerk, and a local reporter.
The talkative Councilmember told lots of stories, some of them “not suitable for work.”
