Fairfield Police arrest suspect after stabbing, charged with attempted murder

Fairfield Police arrested a suspect after a stabbing incident that led to the hospitalization of one victim.

After 11 p.m. on Friday, February 21 Jacob Travis, 24, broke into his former girlfriend's apartment of Gregory Steet in Fairfield and started a fight with one of the occupants. During the fight, Travis allegedly attempted to kill the victim by stabbing the victim multiple times. 

Other occupants called police and Travis fled the area before officers arrived.  The victim was transported by ambulance to a local trauma center where the victim was treated for one stab wound to the back of his head, one stab wound to the back of his neck, and two stab wounds to his back.  Medical professionals stabilized the victim, and at this time the victim is expected to make a full recovery.

Hours later in the early morning of Saturday, February 22,  a Fairfield resident saw Travis in the area of Pennsylvania Avenue and Tabor Avenue and called 9-1-1, provided details about what the suspect was wearing and provided updates as officers responded to the area.  

Responding officers located Travis and arrested while he attempted to flee and hide from officers. Travis was booked into jail for attempted murder and burglary, and the victim is expected to recover.
