The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office has identified the suspect in a machete attack that occurred near a school west of Santa Rosa on Wednesday afternoon as 32-year-old Adam Jordan Faustino. The sheriff’s office received calls around 1:50 p.m. from residents and the Willowside Middle School about a man covered in blood who was walking around in the 5000 block of Hall Road.

Deputies found the victim, who had been in a fight across the street from the school, and determined that the attacker had left the area in a vehicle. The victim, identified as 35-year-old Alan Evans, said he was slashed with a machete during an argument with Faustino at his home on Hall Road, sheriff’s Lt. Dennis O’Leary said. “Faustino was asked to leave and an argument ensued,” O’Leary said.

Evans’ girlfriend went to the Willowside School to report a disturbance, the lieutenant said. Evans suffered major injuries and was taken to a hospital. The sheriff’s office said he is expected to survive. Faustino, who is still at large, is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall and 150 pounds. He has short brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen driving a blue 1996 Ford Ranger pickup with a homemade lumber rack and license plate number 5L63448. Faustino is believed to be living in his truck, O’Leary said. He should be considered armed and dangerous, authorities said.
