OAKHURST — On Monday, Dec. 6, 2021, shortly after 6 p.m., the Madera County Sheriff’s Communications Center received a call for service for a reported stabbing in the 40000 block of Meadow Vista Drive in Oakhurst.

MCSO Deputies Silva, Graves and Corporal Roth arrived on scene and discovered an adult male victim who had sustained stab wounds to his back.

A suspect, who fled the scene prior to deputies’ arrival, was identified by witnesses at the scene as Ronnie Webb. A short time later Ronald Webb, a 34-year-old Oakhurst resident, was located and taken into custody by MCSO deputies. He was transported and booked into the Madera County Jail on felony charges of attempted murder.
