A downtown Napa address that was made notorious by a rape-murder in the 1970s was reportedly the scene of another assault on a woman over the weekend:
Nickolas Robert Thurston, 24, was jailed Saturday after he allegedly assaulted a woman, pulling her off a barstool and onto the floor before dragging her out of Fagiani's on Main Street, according to an arrest summary from the City of Napa Police Department:
