Alves said he was driving back home from Willows Saturday morning when he saw Glenn County Sheriff's Office vehicles passing by him. Alves said the vehicles pulled into a trailer park.

Alves called his father and heard one of his employees might have been involved in what the Sheriff's Office was responding to.

Alves said he grabbed his medical bag in his garage around 11:45 a.m. and rushed to the scene.

Alves started providing assistance to the victim, turned him onto his side and dressed his wounds until the EMT and helicopter arrived. Alves said there were multiple lacerations on the victim's face.

The victim repeated numerous times to not let him die, according to Alves.

The victim is an employee who drives trucks for Alves Farms, according to Alves.

Alves said the attacker was a former employee of Alves Farms and stole the victim's truck.

We will continue to try to get this information confirmed with the Glenn County Sheriff's Office.
