Martinez, Calif. – On Friday, Noah Harris, 42, was sentenced to nine years in state prison for the attempted murder of a victim at a dog park. Harris used a box cutter to slice the neck of the victim as they were engaged in a verbal dispute.
On May 27, 2021, Harris threw a rock at the victim’s car as the victim drove in a Concord dog park. Harris was seen blocking the road in the dog park. The victim and Harris exchanged words after the rock was thrown. Harris approached the victim in his Toyota Prius and threatened the victim’s life five times. Harris yelled at the victim, “Do you want to die today?” A witness to the attack said that Harris also tried to spit on the victim.
In September, a Contra Costa County jury found Harris guilty of five felonies related to this attack, including attempted murder, elder abuse and causing great bodily injury. The case was investigated by the Concord Police Department. Deputy District Attorney Lindsey Williams prosecuted the case on behalf of the People.
