Twenty-one-year-old Isiah Beacham is being sought for domestic violence charges and making criminal threats in an incident that brought multiple law enforcement officers to the Cutten area late Tuesday afternoon.

Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a fight between a man and a woman in the 2200 block of Fern Street in Cutten about 4:40 p.m.  Initially it was believed that a man had barricaded himself in a house there. Reportedly, the man had made threats and indicated he had a firearm.

A K-9 was requested from the Eureka Police Department who agreed to provide one. Eventually, the home was searched, and the man was determined not to be inside.

A BOLO (Be on the Lookout) has been issued for Beacham who is a 5’10”, 140 pound black man with brown hair and brown eyes. If you have any information, please contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251.



  • If there is a BOLO out, we need a picture of him. Otherwise…

  • Yikes!!I hope they catch him!!!

  • Boy, if they start issuing BOL every time a couple gets in a fight, well guess its fairly safe job security..

  • Please clarify. Your description is 5`10“ 140 pound black man with brown eyes and brown hair, Do you mean dark complexion or negro or Mexican or what ?
    and please do not be politically correct on this. Just tell the truth.

    • When I mean dark complexion, I will say so. Black refers to a race in this context. (But Local may be correct that he is also Native American as we heard that from the scanner.)

  • he is native and black. short hair, very thin young male. and a couple fighting doesn’t consist of just ONE individual putting hands on the other. thanks…
