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.
