A fight in which a Dixon woman was allegedly hit by a man and another woman turned into a shooting incident and Attempted Murder charges last Sunday evening, September 1, 2013.
Dixon police responded at 10:38 that night to a call from a friend of the woman who was attacked on North Adams Street. When the police arrived, both the attackers and the victim had fled.
Seven minutes later, the car belonging to the alleged male attacker was found in an apartment complex parking lot on West H Street. All of the car’s windows had been broken out. A witness stated a Hispanic male adult was seen smashing the windows and saying he was retaliating for the attack on the woman victim.
The police were unable to find the window smasher or find the owner of the car to see if he wanted to file a report.
At 10:10 pm a friend of the car owner tried to pick up the damaged car, and was confronted by friends of the woman who was attacked earlier.
At 11:48 pm a police officer who was patrolling the area due to the earlier incidents heard gun shots and saw a suspect vehicle fleeing the scene.
After a high speed pursuit in the outskirts of Dixon, the vehicle stopped on Madden Court and two of the occupants, who were in the front seats, fled on a foot.
The passenger in the rear seat, Jason Wanderstadt (35) of Dixon resident was arrested and booked into the Solano County Jail for numerous felony charges, including Conspiracy, Attempted Murder, Use of a Firearm in the Commission of a Crime, and other charges.
A loaded handgun was found in the vehicle.
Police conducted an extensive search for the other two suspects, with the help of a K-9 unit from the Vacaville Police Department, the Solano County Sheriff, and California Highway patrol H-30 unit, but were unable to find the other two suspects.
The Dixon Fire Department and a Medic ambulance assisted the shooting, a 30 year old male Dixon resident, who was transported to a hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to the arm.
At 12:38 am Monday morning, the owner of the vandalized car called the Dixon Police Department to report his car stolen.
The Dixon Police Department is currently conducting an investigation into the incidents. Anyone with additional information is requested to contact the Dixon Police Department Investigations Division at (707) 678-7070.
