Girard, DestryOn June 28, 2016, at about 9:32 p.m.., Officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to the 300 block of West Del Norte Street for the report of a disturbance involving a man breaking a window.

Once on scene, officers found a male victim bleeding from his forearm. The victim reported that he was stabbed in the arm after confronting a male who threw a bicycle frame through the front window of his apartment. The victim was transported to the hospital by ambulance with a non-life threatening stab wound to his arm.

The victim positively identified the suspect from a photo lineup as Destry Girard, 43 of Eureka. It appears Destry threw the bicycle due to recent arguments over a female. Officers issued an arrest warrant for Destry for assault with a deadly weapon and malicious mischief. Destry also has an unrelated warrant for resisting arrest.
