SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A fugitive wanted on suspicion of trying to stab another man to death in a small East Coast town on New Year's Eve was behind bars in San Diego Wednesday following his arrest near Mount Hope Cemetery.
Members of a fugitive task force tracked down 26-year-old Adam Garrett Foster on Tuesday afternoon at a motel in the 700 block of 32nd Street in the Stockton district, near the junction of State Routes 15 and 94, said Omar Castillo, a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service.
Following a brief foot chase, officers found the suspect hiding in an appliance repair shop in the 3100 block of G Street and took him into custody on an attempted-murder warrant about 3 p.m., according to Castillo.
Foster was wanted for allegedly jumping a man and stabbing him five times in the back Dec. 31 as the victim was walking to his car with his girlfriend in Chesapeake Beach, Md. An alleged accomplice in the attack was arrested a short time later, but Foster remained at large until this week.
A suspected motive for the assault was not released.
Foster was booked into San Diego Central Jail, where he was being held without bail pending extradition to Maryland.
