Reported Broken Bottle Attack May Have Been Self-Defense, Says EPD
Press release from the Eureka Police Department:
On 7/22/15 at about 12:55 p.m., the Eureka Police Department Communications Center received a report that a male subject was attacking a male with a broken bottle on the 1700 block of Everding Street. The caller reported the subject was extremely intoxicated and was threatening to kill the caller.
Upon arrival, officers found a male who was bleeding from a laceration and was dangerously intoxicated. The male was transported to the hospital by ambulance for evaluation. It was determined the two involved males were roommates.
Evidence and statements suggest that the injured male was the aggressor and the other male was acting in self-defense. The final determination of the incident is suspended until the injured party can be interviewed.
