Among the major incidents Manteca Police officers handled this past week included:

• STABBING: On Nov. 3, Officers were dispatched to the 1000 block of Foxfire Drive for a report of a large group of people fighting in the street. While responding to the call on Foxfire Drive, Police Dispatch received a call from Doctors Hospital, advising they had a victim of a stabbing in their emergency room. Several Officers responded to Doctors Hospital and several more to 1000 Foxfire Drive – it was then discovered that the two incidents were related. The victim suffered a 3- to 4-inch laceration on the left side of his torso that was not considered life threatening. According to witness statements, a fight between several subjects took place at a house on Foxfire Drive, and the victim, who was apparently trying to break up the fight, was stabbed. The victim was transported to Doctors Hospital by friends, and the other subjects involved in the fight scattered and left. Police are looking for a suspect described as being in his late 20s, 6 feet tall, 300 pounds with a dark ponytail. The subject reportedly brandished a chrome revolver, but never fired it. The suspect was last seen leaving the area in a late-2000s-model Cadillac or Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

• DUI COLLISION: On Nov. 4, Officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Marin Street for a single-vehicle, rollover collision. Officers arrived and contacted the driver, who admitted to drinking and driving. According to the driver, he was northbound on Edward Avenue at a high rate of speed when his vehicle sideswiped a green Mazda MPV, which was parked along the east curb line. Instead of stopping for this collision, the driver continued northbound to where Edward Avenue dead ends into Marin Street. The driver realized he was going too fast to make the turn onto Marin Street, and locked up his brakes. The vehicle slid into the curb, launched up and through a wrought-iron fence, and landed on its right side in the front yard of a residence. The collision caused major damage to the vehicle and the wrought-iron fence. The driver was treated on scene by medics, and then placed under arrest for DUI.

• HOMICIDE ARREST: On Nov. 3: Manteca Police Officers assisted San Jose Police with the arrest of a homicide suspect. San Jose Police Department Detectives contacted Manteca Police to advise they were following a homicide suspect in our city. The suspect was involved in an altercation on November 2 in San Jose. During the altercation, a firearm was used and the victim ultimately succumbed to his injuries. Detectives were able to track the suspect to the 1200 block of Camilla Court in Manteca. The suspect was located at that location and taken into custody without incident.

• ATTEMPTED BANK ROBBERY: On Nov. 6, Officers responded to Citibank on North Main Street for an attempted robbery. The suspect walked into the bank and handed one of the tellers a note that demanded money. The teller told the suspect she would not comply with the demand. When she refused a second demand from the suspect, he fled the bank. No weapon was seen. The suspect was last seen running eastbound on Edison Street on foot, but was not located. The suspect is described as a black adult male in his 30s, wearing a curly, black wig, black T-shirt and black pants. He was approximately 5-foot 7-inches and weighed between 180 and 200 pounds.
