Reports of a possible intruder brought Benicia Police and Fire to a home in the 300 Block of Allen Way at about 9:49 p.m. Sunday.
Responding officers located an 18-year-old man with multiple stab wounds on the front lawn of the home. Investigators determined that the stabbing followed an altercation when a woman, who was with the suspect at the time of the stabbing, texted the victim to pick her up. When the victim arrived at the suspect’s location, the victim and the suspect argued, at which time the suspect stabbed him.
The wounded man was taken to John Muir Trauma in Walnut Creek in reportedly critical condition.
The suspect, 19, was later arrested and booked into the Solano County jail for assault with deadly weapon and attempted murder and the weapon was recovered and seized.
