NAPA (BCN) — Napa police arrested a man on suspicion of stabbing his romantic partner in a homeless camp Monday night, a police captain said.
Jeffrey Alexander Funes, 22, allegedly stabbed the 51-year-old male victim in a homeless camp along the Napa River in the 500 block of Lincoln Avenue, Capt. Jeff Troendly said.
The victim told police the attack was unprovoked and that he had just laid down when he was stabbed, Troendly said.
The victim went to a nearby home where the resident called police around 10:50 p.m. The victim was taken to Queen of the Valley Medical Center and is recovering in the intensive care unit, according to Troendly.
The victim said he and Funes are in a dating relationship and they lived together in the homeless camp. Funes returned to the camp while police were processing evidence and admitted the stabbing and said it was planned, Troendly said.
Funes also identified a knife at the scene as the weapon, the captain said.
Funes is on probation for two misdemeanor offenses. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, domestic violence with serious injury and violation of probation, Troendly said.
