Two men are in custody in connection with the beating of another man with a baseball bat, according to Paso Robles police.
On Sunday, at about 3:30 p.m., dispatchers received a report of a fight in progress in the 600 block of Creston Road. Responding officers could not locate the fight but found a woman who said her husband was beaten by two men, though he refused to speak with officers, according to a Police Department news release.
Later, around 5:50 p.m., officers received several calls reporting a fight involving a “large number” of people armed with baseball bats and Tasers in the 500 block of Ferro Lane, a few blocks away from the earlier fight.
By the time officers arrived, the crowd had dispersed, but neighbors were able to identify two homes whose occupants were believed to be involved in the brawl. One suspect, 22-year-old Daniel Miranda of Paso Robles, was located in the area and taken into custody without incident. He was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of one count of felony battery and remained in custody Tuesday morning in lieu of $50,000 bail.

A second suspect was later identified as Isacc Eric Gonzalez, 24, of Paso Robles. Gonzalez was detained by county probation officers Monday afternoon and later arrested on suspicion of one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon. He is currently being held without bail.
The alleged victim of the Creston Road fight, identified as a 22-year-old Paso Robles resident, also was located. Officers found he had sustained injuries to his head and body after being struck with a baseball bat. Family members took him to a local hospital; his injuries did not appear life-threatening, according to police.
Police say a small baseball bat was recovered from the area of the Ferro Lane fight, though there is no indication that a Taser was used. The incident does not appear to be gang-related, department officials said.
