On 12/24/2013 at approximately 6:30 pm, deputies were dispatched to the 5000 block of Hall Road, Santa Rosa for a report of a disturbance. The victim called after she ran to a neighbors house because her roommate had attacked her.

Upon arrival in the area deputies contacted the victim who told them that her roommate came home and was talking incoherently and making no sense. The suspect for no apparent reason then grabbed the victim’s head and began pulling her hair and slapping her. The suspect then released the victim and told her he was going into the kitchen to get a knife, then he was going to “eat her.” The victim fearing for her life fled to a neighbors residence and called the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies contacted the suspect in the living room of his residence where they took him into custody. The deputies noticed the suspect to have blood on his hands and clothing. The deputies began checking the area around the residence for other possible victim’s of an assault. The deputies found the victim’s pet, a small Terrier dog that had been stabbed by the suspect and was deceased under the suspect’s vehicle.

The suspect Alan Evans, 35 years old from Santa Rosa was subsequently arrested for Assault with a deadly weapon, battery, terrorist threats and cruelty to an animal. Evans was booked into the Sonoma County Jail and his bail was set at $250,000.
