Suspect in stabbing in front of Richmond police station charged

The suspect in a stabbing in front of the Richmond Police Department that occurred following a child custody exchange Sunday has been identified as 26-year-old San Francisco resident Grey Lonewalker Curtiss.

The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office has charged Curtiss with attempted murder, aggravated mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon, according to RPD.

About 6:10 p.m. Sunday, Curtiss met with the mother of his daughter in front of the police department at 1701 Regatta Blvd. After the exchange was complete and the child was safely in the mother’s vehicle, an argument ensued. A 28-year-old Richmond man who was with the mother exited the vehicle to assist her. As he approached Curtiss, Curtiss allegedly attacked him and stabbed him multiple times, police said.

Police Department personnel heard the commotion and alerted officers, who responded to separate the individuals and begin first aid treatment to the victim.

Curtiss was quickly arrested, a knife was recovered from the scene and Richmond
Fire Department and AMR personnel arrived on scene to treat the victim, police said.

The victim was transported to a local trauma center in serious condition, but is expected to survive his injuries.
