CHICO, Calif. - One man was arrested following a stabbing and attempted carjacking in North Chico on Jan. 10.

The call came in about 5:30 p.m. on Friday when officials say the suspect stabbed a man in his stomach on the 2900 block of Burnap Avenue before fleeing shortly after.

First-responders who were staged nearby say they saw a man matching the suspect description running on the bike path westbound from Burnap Avenue. Officers responded to the area and heard a woman screaming.

The woman then drove up to officers and reported she had just been punched in the face by a man, matching the description of the stabbing suspect, as she sat in her vehicle.

Officials say the woman did get away from the suspect in her vehicle without being injured further or having her vehicle taken from her.

The suspect, William Castor, was found hiding in the backyard of a nearby home and was positively identified as the suspect of the attempted carjacking.

26-year-old Castor was found to be on post-release community supervision through Butte County and was arrested for the attempted carjacking. He is being held at the Butte County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

The man who was stabbed suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Enloe. Officials say the investigation into the stabbing is still ongoing.
