Juan Jose Gomez, along with Juan Carlos Moreno, is wanted for his alleged involvement in the August 4, 2014, assault of a prison inmate that resulted in serious bodily injury to the victim.
While an inmate at the Federal Correctional Complex in Lompoc, California, (serving a federal sentence for illegal re-entry) Gomez and two other men allegedly attacked another inmate, wherein Gomez repeatedly kicked the victim's face and head, resulting in serious injury.
A federal arrest warrant was issued by the United States District Court for the Central District of California on May 8, 2015, after Gomez was charged federally with conspiracy, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to do bodily harm, assault resulting in serious bodily injury, and crimes within the special territorial jurisdiction of the United States.
Gomez was deported to Mexico in August 2014, prior to being charged with the assault.
Gomez has the word "EASTSIDE" tattooed over his left eyebrow and the words "LOS VAGOS" tattooed over his right eyebrow. He has a "13" symbol - three dots over two horizontal bars - tattooed on his left cheek. Gomez has additional tattoos in the following places: left and right hands, back, face, left and right cheeks, and left and right wrists.
