Woman suspected in stabbing at Woodland motel

By From page A2 | June 26, 2013

Woodland police arrested a 44-year-old woman Tuesday for allegedly stabbing a man during an argument at a local motel.
Sgt. Jason Brooks said officers were summoned at about 2:40 p.m. to a gas station at West and Main streets, where they found the 41-year-old victim with a non-life-threatening knife wound to his arm. He was transported to Woodland Memorial Hospital for treatment.

A woman also on scene, April Wilson, was determined to be the suspect in the stabbing, which Brooks said occurred at the nearby Dunton Motel during an argument between Wilson and the victim. Brooks said Wilson at one point refused to let the victim leave the motel room during the fight.

Wilson was lodged at the Yolo County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment, according to Brooks.

The possible involvement of a third person, identified only as a male, remains under investigation, Brooks said. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Woodland Police Department at 530-666-2411.
