Fremont Resident Escapes and Subdues Armed Intruder, Suspect Charged with Attempted Murder

In Fremont, California, a resident faced a life-threatening situation when Jason Kamae, 43, from Tracy, allegedly broke into his Walnut Avenue apartment on October 16. According to Fremont police, the resident was forced to jump from his second-story balcony to escape Kamae, who pursued him, firing a weapon intermittently. The victim ultimately managed to disarm and subdue Kamae, holding him in a chokehold until police arrived.

Kamae has now been charged with attempted murder, residential burglary, and illegal possession of a firearm by a felon. He claimed to police that he only fired his weapon to scare the victim during the chase, as per court records. The confrontation reportedly stemmed from both men’s romantic interest in the same woman. Kamae is accused of breaking into the apartment through a window after covering the resident’s security camera and challenging him to a fight.

During the chase, Kamae allegedly shot at least twice. The situation culminated when the resident, who has not been named by this newspaper, surprised Kamae on a second-story landing of the apartment complex, disarmed him, and rendered him unconscious with a chokehold. Kamae was still unconscious upon police arrival and was subsequently arrested.

Due to previous convictions in 2001 for statutory rape and in 2005 for receiving stolen property in Orange County, Kamae was prohibited from possessing firearms. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges in the current case and remains in custody without bail at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. His next court appearance is scheduled for December.

Additionally, Kamae had faced charges in March for violating his probation in the statutory rape case. He was found in possession of ammunition during a search at a Motel 6 in Fremont. In July, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor related to this violation and served a 10-day sentence.
