Altercation ends in stabbing, arrest at Newberg trailer park

Public safety — NDPD officers arrest William Adams on charges of menacing and assault after he attacked roommate and her boyfriend


Officers responding to a report of an escalating altercation at a west Newberg trailer park arrived April 18 to find “a very chaotic scene with several people outside the trailers yell­ing and screaming,” according to a report from the New­berg-Dun­dee Po­lice De­part­ment.Adams

Eventually, the report said, officers determined that one of the park’s residents, Christina Garcio, was al­leg­edly assaulted by her roommate, William “Bill” Adams, 57, while she was moving items from one trailer to another located in the park. Garcio reportedly received minor injuries to her stomach and mouth during the first round of the altercation.

Things had appeared to calm down, nearby residents told officers, when Garcio returned to her trailer to gather more things. Adams re­portedly came at Garcio with a butcher knife when her boyfriend, Kristopher Schneider, “pushed her out of the way and attempted to disarm Adams.”

Adams then assaulted Schneider, who suffered a laceration to his right forearm and was transported to Providence Newberg Medical Center, where he was treated and released the same day.

Adams was arrested and charged with two counts of menacing and second- and fourth-degree assault. He was transported to the Yamhill County jail in McMinnville to await arraignment. No bail was set.
