The Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Team has arrested a validated 18th Street gang member, along with four other people in relation to a large fight

On 04-20-2016, officers of the Frederick Police Department’s Street Crimes Team responded to the 1200 block of Stillmeadow Place, in Frederick City, in reference to a fight.

During the investigation, it was found Ednelson Castillo-Diaz assaulted a female whom he lives with. In response to Castillo-Diaz’ actions, Castillo-Diaz was attacked and assaulted by four people known to him, with at least one of the suspects using what was described as a broken bottle or knife to strike him in the area of his head. As a result of the fight, Castillo-Diaz received a laceration to his face consistent with being struck or cut with an object.

The four suspects who assaulted Castillo-Diaz were arrested and identified as the following:

- Jose Alfredo Pena Vasquez
- Lisa Renee Sweitzer
- Anabil Mendez
- Fidel Enrique Flores-Pena

Mendez and Flores-Pena were found to be the primary aggressors in the assault of Castillo-Diaz, and were each charged with first degree assault. It should be noted Flores-Pena is a juvenile, but was charged as an adult based on the severity of the assault. In addition, Flores-Pena has been validated by the Frederick Police Department as an active 18th Street gang member.

After being treated for injuries, Castillo-Diaz was arrested for domestic assault.

All suspects were transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for an appearance before the District Court Commissioner.
