Soledad stabbing suspect deterred by victim with revolver

SOLEDAD — Officers with the Soledad Police Department are investigating an incident on May 15, during which a victim shot their assailant who was armed with a knife.

Police said at around 9:30 p.m. last Friday, a subject with a knife approached another person on the 1200 block of Palm Avenue. The suspect attacked a 23-year-old victim with the knife, but the victim was able to fire two rounds from a revolver at the attacker.

The suspect was injured and fled on foot. The victim was unharmed, according to police.
