A 20-year-old Fallbrook man was arrested last night (Mon., Aug. 18) after two men were stabbed at a fight on Stage Coach Lane, one being left in life-threatening condition.
According to Detective Steve Ashkar, the incident took place about 7:50 p.m. in the 200 block of N. Stage Coach Lane in Fallbrook.
“Fallbrook deputies received a radio call of a fight in the 200 block of N. Stage Coach Lane,” said Ashkar. “The reporting party on the call said there was a stabbing at her house.” Ashkar said a suspect was seen running from the scene southbound on Stagecoach Lane.”
“Deputies and, later, detectives responded to the crime scene to investigate the case,” said Ashkar. “Two stabbing victims were hospitalized. One of the victims was in critical condition and was transported via helicopter to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido for a partially-severed carotid artery.”
Ashkar said that victim’s condition is still unknown, but that the other victim was treated and released.
“The investigation revealed the assailant to be 20-year old Fallbrook resident Guy Roman,” reported Ashkar. “Roman turned himself in after it was made known to him from friends that he was wanted in the case.”
Roman was subsequently booked into the Vista Jail on charges of attempted murder.
