UPDATE: Monday, Jan. 20, 2014

A 26-year-old Napa-area homeless man was arrested over the weekend in connection with an alleged stabbing incident.

David James McCarthy was taken into custody at 9:50 a.m. Saturday in the 1300 block of Fourth Street in Napa.

Police said he was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and giving false information to a police officer.

According to a recent update in the Napa Police log, officers were dispatched to a report of a stabbing that occurred in the area of the 1300 block of Fourth Street.

Upon arrival, it was determined McCarthy and another man had been having an ongoing dispute over stolen property.

The other man and McCarthy got into a physical fight in the area of the 1300 block of 4th Street.

During the mutual combat fight, McCarthy pulled out a knife and stabbed the other man once in the abdomen and then fled the area.

McCarthy was located within a few blocks of the incident location and taken into custody without incident.

The man who was stabbed was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center by AMR after being treated at the scene by Napa Fire Department. The man was treated and released for a minor injury.

The suspect was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and providing false information to a police officer and booked into Napa County Detention Center.

Escalation.....maybe. Two gals were in front of the joint duking it out yesterday. Probably sorting it out about their NFL picks of the morrow. LOL HRM

There is one male in custody for "assault with a deadly weapon" but he's listed as 26years old.

Sorry that didn't line up right -- you can get the idea though, or see: https://secure.countyofnapa.org/cjnetweb/Public/BookingReport

Thanks For the info, Belle and V_Therese. I think that is the correct person who they have in custody, based on what I was originally told by a source. However, the police officer who spoke with my colleague listed the age as 24. But the name you've supplied does jibe with what was reported earlier. Thanks again.

V- that's the one I was talking about. The jail logs still have him listed as 26 though? Emily- I'm sorry that somebody stole your rent money and you got kicked out of your home. You are right in saying your boyfriend shouldn't have done what he is accused of. If I may offer any advice, I would say if he hasn't been convicted (which I don't think has happened yet) I would take your down because it can have a negative impact on his court case.
Emily Fahey January 19, 2014 at 02:55 PM
True thank you.
V_Therese January 19, 2014 at 03:02 PM
Yes, Belle, but evidently this is the corrected one: 01/18/2014 1050 201301143 MCCARTHY, DAVID JAMES White, Male, 5'7", 165 lbs, Brown Hair, Blue Eyes DOB: 08/12/1987, 26 Occupation: 01/18/2014 : 0950 MAIN / FIFTH ST NPD 01 245a1PC : F * 148.9aPC : M 100000 Note, false identification was added to the charges.

So all this angst is over the perp's birthday ?

Stabbings, stealing, rapes in our parks, home invasions and murders....damn it NVPD raid and shut down the homeless camps where these criminals live, and to the charities that border the 'Triangle Park', stop feeding this criminal population. You fed Adrian Madrigal and he thanked you by murdering our neighbor Mr. Buffington!

No agnst Tom Davidson. We were making sure we were talking about the same person, and whether the first booking report had his info correct. Just being efficient. lol
