Cain Velasquez was arrested on Monday following an altercation that took place in San Jose, California.
According to online reports it has now been revealed that Velasquez had been taken in due to a potential attempted murder charge after he shot at a car with three individuals in. One of the men inside the vehicle has recently been accused of molesting a close relative of Velasquez.
The accused man is Harry Eugene Goularte, who is also based in the California area, living at a home-day-care business that is run by his mother. According to online sources, court documents have revealed the alleged abuse to the individual may have occurred on over 100 separate occasions.
Goularte was arrested on Friday for a felony count of “a lewd and lascivious act with a child under the age of 14.” However, Goularte would end up being released later despite objections from the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office.
