A deputy working the Knights Ferry area on Monday morning received a tip that the suspect in an assault on Sunday evening was in the area. Upon investigating, authorities reported the arrest of Kody Ingram, 28, of Jamestown, who was walking in the area of Sonora and Kennedy roads. Kody was arrested without incident. He was booked for assault with a deadly weapon and parole violation.
The arrest stemmed from a late night incident on Sunday, Feb. 10 with Stanislaus County sheriff’s deputies dispatched to the area of Sonora Road and Ellen Street, Knights Ferry, in regards to a possible stabbing.
There, deputies found a 45-year-old male victim and his girlfriend, who authorities said were intoxicated and uncooperative regarding the details of what happened. Deputies were able to determine that the victim and his girlfriend had exited a restaurant in the area when they noticed a subject walking down the street who was not from Knights Ferry. They confronted the man, deputies said, and ordered him to leave town as they continuously harassed him. During the confrontation the unknown subject pulled out a machete and struck the victim’s arm, causing a deep laceration.
The incident was reported about 10:40 p.m. Sunday. Deputies were able to develop leads and, with the tip on Monday morning, made an arrest in the case.
