Two people were hospitalized with stab wounds after a fight at the American Canyon Safeway, according to police.
The fight closed the market at 103 W. American Canyon Road due to police activity early Sunday evening.
At about 5:40 p.m., officers were sent to the Safeway after reports of a disturbance and a customer harassing other patrons, police said in a news release. As police responded, the incident escalated to a physical fight.
Officers identified the two people involved in the fight and noted that both had stab wounds. Police performed first aid before paramedics arrived to take over medical care.
Both suspects were handcuffed and later taken to hospitals, one to Kaiser hospital in Vallejo and the other to Queen of the Valley Medical Center, police said. Both were listed in stable condition.
Police later reported that one of the involved people, Jerome Anthony Leonard II, 33, of San Pablo had been arrested and booked into the Napa County jail for a possible charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
Leonard posted bail and was released, the jail reported.
Police will be sending their investigation to the District Attorney's Office for a decision as to whether charges should be filed against one or two people, Chief Oscar Ortiz said Monday.
Any eyewitnesses who have not yet been interviewed are asked to contact American Canyon Police at 707-253-4451.
