Stabbing in North San Juan leads to arrest

Nathaniel Wesley Marson

A man stabbed in the chest during an early Thursday bar fight was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Nevada County authorities said.

David Nathaniel Wesley Marson, 34, of North San Juan, faces a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the stabbing. He remained in the Nevada County Jail Thursday afternoon under $25,000 in bond, reports state.

Deputies responded around 1:30 a.m. to reports of a stabbing in North San Juan. Witnesses to the stabbing, who were taking the victim to the hospital, flagged down the officers. Deputies called for medical transport, and received a description of the suspect and his vehicle, Lt. Sean Scales said.

Officers found a vehicle matching that description — a Subaru hatchback — and stopped it near Birchville and Pleasant Valley roads. Marson was inside, the lieutenant said.

“We recovered several possible weapons,” Scales added.

According to Scales, an argument earlier this week between Marson and the 27-year-old victim escalated when they again saw each other early Thursday at a North San Juan bar. It grew physical, leading to the stabbing.
