Stabbing That Injured 25-year-old Man in Oakley May Have Been Self-Defense

OAKLEY (BCN)– A 25-year-old Antioch resident is in stable condition after he was stabbed in the abdomen Saturday morning in Oakley, a police sergeant said today.

Officers responded around 8:30 a.m. to a report of a person lying on the ground with a stab wound in the 400 block of Duckhorn Court, Oakley police Sgt. Robert Roberts said.

Roberts said officers arrived to find the victim outside on the ground. The 25-year-old man was transported to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where he underwent surgery, and as of Saturday evening, Roberts said he was in stable condition.

The victim and the suspect, an approximately 50-year-old man, lived together at one point, Roberts said, adding it was unclear whether or not they were still roommates.

The two got into an altercation on Saturday morning and the suspect ended up stabbing the victim, but Roberts said it may have been an act of self-defense.

The suspect voluntarily came to the police station for an interview and Roberts said the victim is also cooperating with the investigation.

As of Sunday evening, Roberts said detectives were still investigating the case and so far, no one has been arrested and no charges have been filed.

“Between everything we had, we felt it was okay to present all the evidence to the (district attorney’s office) after finishing our investigation,” Roberts said.
