San Diego County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Lakeside man wanted in an assault Sunday, officials said.
Deputies surrounded the suspect’s apartment on Wintergardens Boulevard after following the man from a gas station on Woodside Avenue.
A victim called deputies from the gas station around 9:20 p.m. reporting that the suspect used a stick to beat him and then chased him with a knife.
The suspect ran from the gas station and barricaded himself in the nearby apartments.
Deputies said they executed a search warrant for the apartment and arrested 24-year-old Steve Nakho without incident.
The weapons believed to be used in the assault were recovered.
The victim suffered minor injuries and decided not to get medical attention from authorities.
Nakho was booked on charges for assault with a deadly weapon.
