Napa Police arrested two people Tuesday on suspicion of stabbing a man outside his apartment. The 65-year-old victim said he was returning to his apartment in the 1400 block of 4th Street after having lunch at the Salvation Army when he was attacked by a male resident of the apartment complex, Nicholas Ross Muresan, 32, around 12:40 p.m., Capt. Jeff Troendly said.

Muresan, also known as Nick Mureson, allegedly stabbed the victim twice in the back with an edged weapon then fled in a waiting vehicle driven by Leslie Laree Woodworth, 29, of Napa. Woodworth also is known as Leslie Marie Woodworth, police said. Witnesses provided a vehicle description and a partial license plate and police alerted other law enforcement agencies, Troendly said.

A Napa County sheriff’s deputy spotted the vehicle and two suspects a short time later in Jameson Canyon. The deputy stopped the vehicle and Muresan and Woodworth were taken into custody. Muresan and Woodworth were booked in the Napa County jail for assault likely to cause great bodily injury, causing harm to an elder or dependant adult and use of a deadly weapon while committing a felony. The victim was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center and police are still investigating why the stabbing occurred, Troendly said.
