A Modesto man has been booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly stabbed a man during a fight in Ripon.
In a news release today, Ripon police said two men got into a fight in 300 block of Orange Avenue just after 10 a.m. Thursday, apparently in a dispute over a woman.
Police said Justin Moore, 27, of Modesto stabbed a 26-year-old Ripon man with a pocketknife.
The victim suffered three puncture wounds to the abdomen and back. He was taken to a hospital with what police said were "non-critical injuries."
