Two Woodland men arrested in alleged attempted homicide

Woodland city police arrested two men Wednesday on suspicion of attempted homicide, police officials said today in a press release.

Police officers received a call of a reported stabbing of an adult male at 12:44 p.m. on the 600 block of Elm Street, the release said. When officers arrived on scene, they found the victim with a "life-threatening injury to his neck."

Police also said a burgundy sedan had fled the scene following the stabbing.

The victim was taken to U.C. Davis Medical Center to be treated. As of this morning, the victim was in stable but critical condition, the release said.

Police later searched for the sedan and found the vehicle driving on East Gibson Road.

Rudy Gonzales Jr., 26, and Javier Gortarez Jr., 24, were arrested in the alleged attempted homicide. Both men are Woodland residents.

The case is still under investigation by the Woodland Police Department and the Yolo County Gang Task Force.
