Friday evening Carson City Deputies responded to a report of a home intrusion and fight in the 900 block of Woodside Drive. A woman told 911 that a man had entered her apartment and was fighting on the floor with her husband. The line disconnected. When Deputies arrived, they discovered that an adult Native American male had entered the apartment, and during the fight with the male resident, the intruder was stabbed several times. The intruder was transported by paramedics to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center.
Before all this happened neighbors told Deputies that they had witnessed and reported to 911 an aggressive intoxicated adult male outside their apartment. The drunken male was banging on cars, yelling, and at one point was lying on the ground next to a car. No damage was reported and the suspect was not found by police. Witnesses told officers the suspect was last seen walking away in the direction of the eventual home intrusion.
Witnesses stated an adult Native American male was attending a family birthday party as a guest. During the party, the man became highly intoxicated and allegedly battered several persons, including a juvenile. The man left the area on foot and was not seen again. This particular incident was not previously reported to the Sheriff’s Office and the names of the victims and severity of the fights is being investigated.
Deputies suspect the man likely left the birthday party on foot. Agitated and intoxicated, he probably walked to the 900 block of Woodside Drive, where he was seen by neighbors and the original incident was finally reported to deputies. A short time later, the suspect entered the apartment and was confronted by the female resident. Her husband then confronted the male and told him to leave. But when the intruder refused, a fight ensued and the intruder was stabbed by the resident. The intruder died soon-after at CTRMC.
The identity of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of his family. The investigation will be forwarded to the District Attorney for review.
