REDDING, Calif. - A Redding man was stabbed on Sunday evening in a mobile home park after an argument broke out about money the man supposedly owed another man.
Officers said they responded to reports of the stabbing at the Riverside Mobile Home Park in Redding on Nov. 17 at 9:15 p.m. Officers arrived quickly and detained 58-year-old Stewart Kingsley, of Bullhead City, Arizona.
Officers also located 57-year-old Jerry Scott of Redding and discovered he had injuries to his left hand. Scott was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
Throughout the investigation, Officers said Kingsley went to a trailer to confront Scott over money that he owed.
The two men argued before Kingsley revealed a knife and stabbed Scott in the hand. Witnesses tried to break up the argument and took the knife from Kingsley and detained him until officers arrived.
Officers said Kingsley is a convicted felon and was in possession of police-style baton and pepper spray when he confronted Scott.
Possession of these items is prohibited under California law, officers said.
Kingsley was booked into the Shasta County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon, possession of pepper spray by a convicted felon, and possession of a deadly weapon.
Scott’s injuries were not life-threatening and he was later released from the hospital.
