Washoe County Sheriff's Office Patrol Deputies have arrested Jonathan Stremski, 41, of Incline Village on multiple felony counts following an incident on March 30, 2022.

Shortly before 9:40 p.m. on Wednesday night, Incline Village Patrol Deputies were called to a residence in the 800 block of Southwood Boulevard for an Assault with a Deadly Weapon in progress.

Deputies arrived on scene within three minutes of the first 911 call. Nevada State Police Highway Patrol Troopers, along with Placer County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to assist.
