Napa Police reported the arrest of a 34-year-old resident in connection with a stabbing Saturday night.
At 8:30 p.m., officers were called to the corner of Arboreo and South Franklin streets after reports that a woman had attacked a man with a knife, according to Sgt. Nick Dalessi.
The victim, a 59-year-old Napa resident, was taken by American Medical Response ambulance to Queen of the Valley Medical Center with a stab wound near his shoulder, Dalessi said. His identity and condition were not immediately available Sunday afternoon.
Police found 34-year-old Christine Carter Camp, whom police described as a family acquaintance of the victim, inside a backyard in the first block of Arboreo, behind the home of a family member, according to Dalessi. When Camp refused to leave the yard, police formed a team to negotiate with her and safely take her into custody, Dalessi said.
After several minutes, Camp emerged from the yard with her clothes covered in blood, but again disobeyed police orders, leading an officer to fire a bean-bag gun at her, according to Dalessi. Two canvas-filled rounds, each filled with 1 ounce of weights, struck the woman, one in the leg and the other in the arm, and caused her to fall to the ground, he said.
Having subdued Camp, police took her first to the Queen for observation, then to the Napa County jail for booking, Dalessi said.
Camp faces felony allegations of assault with a deadly weapon as well as violating her probation in Napa County.
The events leading to Saturday's attack, and any possible motive, remain unclear, according to Dalessi.
