Suspect sought in weekend stabbing

A quarrel between roommates turned violent Sunday when a Truckee man stabbed another with a screwdriver.

Police are currently searching for the suspect, Juan Duncan-Gonzales of Truckee.

“We’re still actively looking for the guy,” said Nevada County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Gary Jacobson.

The stabbing was the end result of a fight between Duncan-Gonzales and his roommate Jesus Carrillo, 28, at a Donner Pass Road residence. The fight occurred at about 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Carrillo was stabbed in the side by a screwdriver wielded by Duncan-Gonzales, who then fled the scene on foot.

Carrillo suffered only minor injuries in the attack, said Jacobson, and is expected to make a full recovery.

Duncan-Gonzales, 38, is described as a Hispanic male, 5′ 8″ and 160 lbs. He has a shaved head with a scar on the top of his head, and a tattoo on either his left or right biceps that may possibly resemble a snake.

The suspect was wearing black pants and a black t-shirt, and a black cap with the letter “A” on it.

If you have information regarding the whereabouts of Duncan-Gonzales, please notify the NCSO at (530) 582-7838 immediately.
