A documented gang member accused with two others of holding a man at gunpoint and beating him up in the eastern Coachella Valley made his initial court appearance Monday but did not enter a plea.

Albin Docnal Tadeo, 25, of Oasis was arrested last Wednesday stemming from the assault reported in March.

Tadeo appeared at the Banning Justice Center before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Alfonso Fernandez, who rescheduled the defendant’s arraignment for Tuesday at the Larson Justice Center in Indio.

He remains in custody in lieu of $40,000 bail at the John Benoit Detention Center in Indio.

Tadeo is accused in the attack along with Diego Marquez Martinez, 24, and Jesus Garcia Rodriguez, 18, both of Oasis. They are also documented gang members, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Tadeo and Martinez are charged with one count each of assault with a gun and assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury. Tadeo is also charged with witness intimation, while Martinez is charged with one count of robbery.

Martinez posted bond and is scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 7. Rodriguez also posted bond but has not yet been charged by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.

According to sheriff’s Sgt. Mariano Matos III, the suspects were arrested during the execution of three search warrants in Coachella.

They were sought in connection to an assault reported March 26 in Oasis in which Daniel Hernandez was held at gunpoint and assaulted — why was unclear.

Hernandez suffered injuries described as major, according to the sheriff’s department.
