A man from Sacramento and a woman from Woodland have been arrested in connection with a New Year’s Eve stabbing in Davis.
Officers responded about 12:28 a.m. Thursday to H Street, north of Second Street, regarding a stabbing that had occurred in the area, according to a Davis Police Department news release. They found two people who had suffered multiple stab wounds during a fight that took place after leaving a bar. Witnesses reportedly told police that the victims and suspects knew each other and had been involved in a fight earlier in the evening, which may have been related to the stabbing.
Officers were told that the suspects, identified as Ramiro Alejandro Cordova, 23, and Nathalie Hernandez, 25, approached in their vehicle while the victims were walking to their parked car. Witnesses told officers that the male suspect, Cordova, got out of his vehicle and assaulted both victims with a knife.
Police were told that as the suspects were leaving the scene, the driver, Hernandez, appeared to intentionally steer her car to strike one of the stabbing victims.
