Saturday night stabbing near Redwood City leads to arrest


Police arrested a man Saturday night for allegedly stabbing another man in Redwood City, then leading officers on a foot pursuit after being pulled over.

San Mateo County Sheriff's Office deputies responded at 9:44 p.m. to a call from the 400 block of 4th Avenue in unincorporated Redwood City, about an alleged assault involving a knife.

Deputies say a man tried stabbing another man multiple times. Deputies say the victim sustained only minor injuries during the attack.

The suspect then fled the scene in a vehicle.

Before receiving the call, deputies stopped the suspect's vehicle for an alleged traffic violation. He fled on foot but was "quickly apprehended," the sheriff's office said.

Deputies also found that the suspect allegedly violated a restraining order unrelated to Saturday night's incident. They also allegedly found him possessing illegal drugs and allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.

The suspect was taken into custody and booked on suspicion of attempted murder, violating a restraining order, resisting arrest, drug possession, and driving while intoxicated. He was being held Sunday morning at the Maguire Correctional Facility without bail.
