Man Robbed Near Myrtle and Dean in Eureka
According to our reporter Bobby Kroeker, a man was robbed near the intersection of Myrtle and Dean Streets in Eureka a little before 7 p.m. this evening.
Kroeker said the suspect, who fled the scene in a black vehicle, punched the victim in the face and possibly struck the victim on the top of the head as well.
According to scanner traffic, the suspect may have been in possession of a taser. It’s unclear at this point if the taser was used during the process of the robbery.
The Eureka Police Department, Humboldt Bay Fire and City ambulance responded to the scene.
At this point, we don’t have a lot of information, but we’ll update this post if we hear more.
