A Bridgeport man is in custody after allegedly beating and stabbing a 66-year-old man in an incident reported Tuesday night in the Mono County seat.
Travis Christian, 27, was taken into custody by Mono County Sheriff’s deputies after the 7:40 p.m. report.
The victim, a Plymouth, Calif., resident, was found in his car covered in blood with multiple stab wounds to his head, face and arms.
According to the sheriff’s office, there was an altercation between the victim and Christian, who was working as the night manager of the Big Meadow Lodge.
During the fight, Christian allegedly began beating and stabbing the victim in the head and face.
A guest staying at the lodge heard the victim yell for help, and came to his aid, assisting him to his car so he could drive to the California Highway Patrol office, where he sought help.
The victim was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno where he is in the intensive care unit, being treated for his injuries.
Christian is being held at the Mono County Jail in Bridgeport on pending charges of attempted murder.
This case is under investigation with the Mono County Sheriff’s Office and Mono County District Attorney’s Office.
