Man Attacked With Golf Club Near Courthouse


Tonight about 8:30 p.m., a man leaving the Courthouse Market was struck from behind two times with a golf club. A witness told law enforcement he had been driving by on 4th street when he witnessed the attack. He told the officer he honked his horn, jumped out to help and called 911.

Eureka Police were nearby and arrived quickly on the scene. They arrested the suspect not far from the entrance to the jail.

The victim refused medical and gave permission for his photo to be taken. It is graphic. Consider not scrolling to the bottom if you might be disturbed.
