Within a few hours, a sus­pect was ar­rested for a stab­bing that oc­curred in Fair­field late Fri­day night.

At ap­prox­i­mately 11 p.m. Fri­day, Ja­cob Travis, 24, al­legedly broke into the apart­ment of his ex-girl­friend on Gre­gory Street, po­lice said. While a hand­ful of peo­ple were in the apart­ment, Travis al­legedly obtained a knife and in­sti­gated a fight with one of the oc­cu­pants.

Travis is ac­cused of stab­bing one of the vic­tims mul­ti­ple times in an at­tempt to kill them, po­lice said. Other oc­cu­pants called 911, but Travis fled be­fore of­fi­cers ar­rived.

At ap­prox­i­mately 1 a.m. Satur­day morn­ing, a Fair­field res­i­dent called 911 to re­port see­ing Travis in the

Travis area of Penn­syl­va­nia and Ta­bor av­enues. The caller pro­vided de­tails about what Travis was wear­ing and ad­di­tional up­dates as of­fi­cers re­sponded. Travis was lo­cated at the 1200 block of Ta­bor and ar­rested as he at­tempted to run and hide from of­fi­cers, po­lice said.

Travis was charged with at­tempted mur­der and first­de­gree bur­glary. He was booked into the Solano County Jail where he is be­ing held with­out bail.

The stab­bing vic­tim was trans­ported via am­bu­lance to a lo­cal trauma cen­ter where he was treated for a stab wound to the back of his head, an­other stab wound to the back of his neck and two more stab wounds to his back. The vic­tim was sta­bi­lized by med­i­cal per­son­nel where he is ex­pected to make a full re­cov­ery, po­lice said.
