Stabbing Leads to One Person Hospitalized and the Suspect Arrested for Attempted Murder

On 2/21/20, around 11:15pm, 24-year-old Jacob Travis broke into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment on Gregory Street.  While several people were inside the apartment, Jacob Travis obtained a knife and started a fight with one of the people inside.  During the fight, Jacob Travis attempted to kill the victim by stabbing the victim multiple times. Other occupants of the apartment called 9-1-1 and Jacob Travis fled the area before officers arrived.  The victim was transported by ambulance to a local trauma center where the victim was treated for one stab wound to the back of his head, one stab wound to the back of his neck, and two stab wounds to his back.  Medical professionals stabilized the victim, and at this time the victim is expected to make a full recovery.

On 2/22/20, around 1:00am, a Fairfield resident saw Jacob Travis in the area of Pennsylvania Avenue and Tabor Avenue.  The witness called 9-1-1, provided details about what the suspect was wearing and provided updates as officers responded to the area.  Due to the teamwork between the witness, dispatchers, and officers, Jacob Travis was located and arrested while he attempted to flee and hide from officers.

Jacob Travis was booked into jail for Attempted Murder and Burglary, his photograph is attached. 

This case came to a quick conclusion due to the willingness of witnesses to cooperate with the investigation and provide updated information to the police department.  This case is an example of how the community and the police department can work together to help make our city safer.
