A Petaluma man was arrested Monday night on suspicion of assaulting another man outside a bar and restaurant because of comments he made to a female friend, police said. Police responded to a fight involving several people in the rear parking lot of Kodiak Jack’s Honky Tonk and Restaurant at 256 Petaluma Blvd. N. at around 10 p.m., Petaluma police Sgt. Andrew Urton said. Police found a man with several stab wounds that were not life-threatening and saw a white Chevrolet Silverado pickup leaving the scene, Urton said.
Police stopped the pickup a block away at the intersection of Kentucky and Prospects streets, Urton said. Jakob Strawn, 20, of Petaluma, a passenger in the pickup, was found in possession of a folding knife and was identified by witnesses as the assault suspect, Urton said. He was arrested on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor battery, Urton said.
Police later determined Strawn’s friend, 18-year-old Christina Keith of Petaluma, initiated the fight and battered the stabbing victim because of comments he made about her, Urton said. Keith was arrested for misdemeanor battery and released from the police department with a citation to appear in court. Strawn was booked into the Sonoma County jail under $20,000 bail.
