Fairfield police arrested a 15-year-old boy Sunday night on suspicion of stabbing a man who allegedly assaulted his mother. The teen was booked into the Solano County juvenile hall for assault with a deadly weapon, Fairfield police Officer Cleo Mayoral said. Police responded around 11:40 p.m. to a report of a stabbing in the 700 block of Georgia Way, Officer Cleo Mayoral said.
They found a 29-year-old man suffering from five stab wounds in the back, Mayoral said. Police learned the man struck his 34-year-old girlfriend in the face several times before the stabbing, Mayoral said. She suffered facial injuries but declined medical assistance, Mayoral said. The teen witnessed the assault and stabbed his mother’s boyfriend with a 7-inch fixed-blade knife to protect her, Mayoral said.
The stabbing victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to the Northbay Medical Center in Fairfield, Mayoral said. Police recovered the knife as evidence. The mother’s boyfriend was not arrested because of his injuries, but police will ask the Solano County District Attorney’s Office to file felony domestic violence charges against him, Mayoral said. The couple of nine years lived together and have three children, Mayoral said.
Both also were raising the woman’s 15-year-old son from a previous relationship, Mayoral said.
