Vallejo police arrested a 22-year-old man at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday on suspicion of attempted murder after he allegedly beat and stabbed his mother, according to Vallejo Times Herald.
The victim, a middle-aged Vallejo woman, was taken to a local trauma center at 6:25 p.m.
According to Vallejo Times Herald, the incident occurred in the victim’s home on the 300 block of Ebbetts Pass. After being severely beaten and stabbed, the victim’s roommate intervened between the victim and her son. The victim then ran to a nearby neighbor on the 400 block of Roleen Drive, and an ambulance was called.
A manhunt was conducted throughout the night until Felix Rivera, a Vallejo resident, was arrested in the 100 block of Hogan Avenue.
According to Vallejo Times Herald, an investigation by police led them to believe the suspect was in the home on Hogan Avenue. Police then surrounded the residence and Rivera was arrested while trying to flee out the back of the home.
The victim is said to have suffered “moderate,” non-life threatening injuries and was treated at NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield.
During the manhunt, Vallejo police were assisted by American Canyon officers. Following his arrest, Rivera was booked into Solano County jail.
