October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and the Solano College Campus Sheriff’s Office have partnered with the Associated Students of Solano Community College (ASSC) to provide dating violence awareness to students. Dating violence can happen to anyone regardless of gender, race, socio-economic status, or whether or not they have experience with dating before. According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 4 adolescents experience verbal, physical, emotional or sexual abuse from a dating partner each year. Our campus Sheriff Deputies conducted workshops and had an informational table in the cafeteria last week in attempt to reach as many students as we could. To date, we have provided dating violence awareness training to over 100 students. With everyone’s help, we will break the silence and stop dating and domestic violence! Attached are pictures of our campus Deputies and Community Service Officers (CSOs) in action, at our table.
Yesterday afternoon around 7pm, 21-year-old Christopher Rouse of Antioch, was arrested for attempted murder after he stabbed another 21-year-old man earlier in the day. At approximately 1pm, Rouse entered a downstairs apartment on 1700 block of Lemon Street in an attempt to make another 21-year-old leave the property. The two men began arguing over a family dispute and a civil disagreement involving landlord/tenant issues. The two men began fighting and during the altercation, Rouse removed a box cutter (razor blade) knife from his pocket and cut the victim twice, once across his back and once across his chest. The victim ran from the apartment and shortly after was contacted by law enforcement and medical personnel. He was immediately transported to a local hospital and treated for his major injuries. Rouse initially fled from the scene prior to police arrival, but after several hours he was contacted, questioned and ultimately arrested for attempted murder.
Thanks to our community working with our deputies, we arrested a man who stabbed two victims and threatened to shoot a 9-year-old child. On Tuesday night, deputies were called to the 5000 block of Fry Road in Vacaville after someone called 911 to report an assault. Deputies arrived and discovered 32-year-old Kristopher Williams of Vacaville, stabbed two men with a lock-blade knife and afterwards ran from the scene. Witnesses gave our deputies a detailed description of Williams and pointed to the last known direction where he took off running. Through the course of the investigation, our deputies learned Williams entered a home without permission to take a 9-year-old child. Williams knew the child, but was not related. This isolated incident occurred after an ongoing child custody disagreement between Williams and the victim's family. During the incident a heated verbal and physical confrontation occured. During the incident, Williams made credible threats to shoot the child if she didn't go willingly. Prior to leaving, Williams pulled a lock-blade knife and stabbed two male victims who were trying to stop him, one in the neck and one in the abdomen. Both men lived, but suffered major injuries. Each were transported to the hospital were they were medically treated and underwent surgery. Deputies found Williams later that evening in his home and arrested him. Williams faces a number of charges, including: attempted homicide (two counts), kidnapping, child cruelty and burglary.
