The Butte County Sheriff's Office in Oroville, Calif., issued a felony warrant arrest for a suspect they believe was involved in the stabbing of a man Tuesday at a self-storage facility on Lincoln Boulevard.
Ronald Robert Knight, 43, is in stable condition at a local hospital. According to police, Knight was stabbed in the neck by Zachary James Ragan, 42, just after 7 p.m. The two men, who are acquaintances, were visiting the storage facility when the assault occurred.
Police do not yet know what spurred the attack. Knight, who underwent surgery at Enloe Medical Center, has been unable to talk to investigators.
Sheriffs deputies, the California Highway Patrol officers and a police helicopter searched for Ragan following the assault. The arrest warrant includes a felony count of assault with a deadly weapon.
Ragan is described as white, 6 feet tall, 175 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. He has tattoos covering most of his upper body and a horn tattooed on his forehead.
