On February 24th 2021 around 8:41PM, Communications Dispatchers with the Marin County Sheriff’s Office received multiple 911 calls reporting a stabbing in the area of Cole Drive in Marin City. Deputies were immediately dispatched to the area and the first unit arrived approximately 2 minutes later. Deputies requested Marin County and Southern Marin Fire personnel to stage in the area.
Upon arrival, Deputies located a female victim suffering from multiple stab wounds inside an apartment. Immediate care was provided to the victim and fire was requested into the scene. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she is listed in stable condition and is expected to survive.
Deputies contacted Demeshia Harris in a nearby apartment with blood on her body. A knife with blood on it was located nearby and collected as evidence.
