1 min read

An altercation between two men in the Emeryville CVS parking lot on San Pablo Avenue led to a 58-year-old Emeryville resident being stabbed in the torso according to an Emeryville PD Media release.

At approximately 2:10 a.m., an EPD officer was patrolling San Pablo Avenue when he was stopped in the middle of the road by a man who reported he was just involved in a fight in the CVS Parking Lot. The officer located the victim standing in the lot with a stab wound to his left torso. Emergency Medical Services were summoned to treat his wound.

The man who flagged down the EPD officer was identified as 55-year-old Charles Shelton of Oakland and determined to be the suspect in the case. According to statements by the victim, suspect and witnesses, Shelton and the victim became involved in a verbal argument during which Shelton brandished a knife, charged the victim, threatened to “kill” him, and then stabbed him in the right side of his torso.

Shelton was arrested and transported to Santa Rita Jail where he was booked on one felony count of attempted murder. The knife was recovered at the scene by officers and booked into evidence at the Emeryville Police Department. The victim’s injury was considered non-life threatening.
