Has history of arrests
By Scott Alonso, Public Information Officer, Contra Costa County Office of the District Attorney
On October 22, Noah M. Harris, born July 23, 1979, 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. Harris was sentenced by the Honorable Terri Mockler.
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.
He was on probation at the time and was arrested by Concord police for 1203.2(A) – Revocation Of Probation, 245(A)(1) – Assault w/Deadly Weapon Or Assault w/Force Likely To Produce GBI, and 368(B)(1) – Elder Or Dependent Adult Abuse.
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.
