Novato police arrested a Marin City man Wednesday on suspicion of stabbing his roommate on Sunday. Police stopped Duane Warren Jackson, 42, around 7:40 p.m. Wednesday for driving erratically in the area of 220 Alameda Del Prado in Novato, police said. Jackson appeared intoxicated and tried to flee after he was given sobriety tests, police said. Jackson gave police a false name, but police learned his true name and determined he had a warrant for his arrest for an attempted murder in Marin City.
After he was arrested Jackson threatened to kill a Novato police officer and a Marin County sheriff’s deputy, police said. He was booked into the Marin County jail for attempted murder, resisting a police officer, DUI and giving a false identification to an officer. Jackson is suspected of stabbing a man in the head, abdomen, left hand and upper lip during a physical altercation on Terrace Drive in Marin City around 2:45 a.m. Sunday, Marin County sheriff’s Lt. Jamie Scardina said.
Jackson and the victim share a residence, and Jackson kicked in the victim’s bedroom door and attacked him with a knife in each hand, Scardina said. The victim fought off Jackson and fled the residence. He was treated at the scene and taken to Marin General Hospital, Scardina said. The stabbing appears to be an isolated incident between Jackson and the victim, Scardina said.
