FAIRFIELD — A Solano County sheriff’s deputy arrested a 32-year-old Fairfield man Monday who was walking along Red Top Road after he was identified as the suspect in the attempted murder of a 21-year-old taken to the hospital with a life-threatening knife wound, the sheriff’s office says.

Nicholas Steven Cornwell was arrested after being spotted at about 10:10 a.m. and wearing a bullet-proof vest, which is a violation of the law, the Solano County Sheriff’s Office said.

The Napa County Sheriff’s Office notified Solano County just before 3:30 a.m. about the 21-year-old man brought to Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa after being wounded in Solano County just outside of Napa County.

Deputies arrived and spoke with those who had transported the victim to the hospital. Deputies were also dispatched at the same to a residence on the 3500 block of Miners Trail just outside Napa County on Highway 12. A perimeter was established and authorities searched the heavily wooded area nearby, but Cornwell was not found.

Deputy Mike Waller remained in the area and saw someone who matched Cornwell’s description. The deputy took Cornwell into custody without incident.

Cornwell, on post-release community supervision out of Napa County, also had an outstanding arrest warrant out of Napa County for violating his community supervision, law enforcement said.

He was booked into the Solano County jail on suspicion of attempted murder, being a convicted violent felon in possession of body armor and the warrant for violating community supervision. Cornwell was held without bail. His first court appearance is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Solano County Superior Court in Fairfield.

    So maybe releasing criminals early on PRCS just to save money isn't necessarily a good thing? I guess it doesn't really matter as long as it's not you who are the victim.

    This is truly not a safe or desirable community to live or raise a family in. And all the spending on welfare and cops is not making the situation any better.

    "wearing a bullet-proof vest" is a violation of the law? Or did you mean that it is illegal for convicted criminals to wear a bullet proof vest?

    My friend, it's another example of laws that make honest people criminals. Living in Fairfield, or perhaps Vallejo, it would seem a prudent thing to do... to wear a bullet-proof vest while out walking your dog. But if you do, the cops will take YOU to jail and leave the criminals alone.

    Any good "Constitutional Sheriff" could probably sort that out.

    You're just not going to give that up, are you CD? You can't admit that you don't know what you are talking about. You should hope that someday you might grow up and be half the man that any of the Constitutional Sheriffs are.

    FDC, I know exactly what I'm talking about. Since you're a little slow to this point, you just haven't figured that out yet.

    It's only illegal for persons on PRCS or Parole to wear body armor. If your not one of these convicted felons then you're gonna be jusssssst fine.
