Suspect in stabbing found hiding in tree

A Santa Rosa man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after police said he stabbed another man during a fight Saturday night.

William Estomba, 20, is also facing a violation of probation, according to Santa Rosa police.

On Saturday, officers responded at 8:50 p.m. to Julliard Park at 225 Santa Rosa Ave. after receiving a repot of a stabbing. Police said the suspect, later identified as Estomba, was with the victim and several other people at the park when a fight broke.

Police said Estomba stabbed the victim twice in the back and then fled the area.

Officers brought in K9 units to search for Estomba, and located him just after 9 pm. hiding in a tree along Sonoma Avenue. The victim was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
