Elderly Napa Woman Frightened by Threatening Houseguest with Meth Paraphernalia

The senior citizen escaped, called police, and the 59-year-old man, who allegedly talked of cannibalism and castration, was arrested.

An elderly Napa woman flagged down officers Sunday afternoon after fleeing her residence on Lincoln Avenue, where she said a man was scaring her, being verbally aggressive and blocking her home's doorway so she could not leave, police said.

The Napa Police Department entered the house at about 5:20 p.m. and, after a short struggle, arrested a 59-year-old Napa man, who was "acting irrational, talking about cannibalism and castration," police said.

A search of the suspect's room turned up several glass pipes used for smoking methamphetamine, police said.

He was booked on numerous felony and misdemeanor charges, according to police, including: suspicion of  causing harm to elder/dependent adult; possession of controlled-substance paraphernalia; false imprisonment of elder/dependent adult; resisting police.

The relationship between the victim and arrested individual was not disclosed.
