San Jose police will arrest three men suspected of assaulting a fourth man at a bar in the city early this morning, a police sergeant said.

At 12:23 a.m. today, San Jose police received reports of a fight in the parking lot of Alex's 49er Inn bar, located at 2214 Business Circle near Bascom Avenue, according to Sgt. Ronnie Lopez.

A witness reported that between eight and 10 people appeared to be fighting and were throwing beer bottles, Lopez said.

While San Jose police were on their way to the scene, deputies with the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office stopped a vehicle carrying three men who suffered stab wounds, Lopez said.

The men, located at Bascom Avenue and San Carlos Street near the bar, were taken to a local hospital where it was determined that they were the suspects involved in the fight, according to Lopez.

Police found a man at the bar who had been injured after allegedly being assaulted by the three suspects, Lopez said.

The three suspects and the victim are all expected to survive. One of the suspect's injuries originally appeared to be life threatening, but he was in stable condition as of 7 a.m., Lopez said.

The three suspects, aged 38, 18, and 45 years old, will be booked into jail once they are released from the hospital, Lopez said.
