16-Year-Old in Hospital After Allegedly Assaulted
On Thursday around 7 p.m., a 16-year-old Myers Flat boy, Jacob Stebbins, was allegedly assaulted with a baseball bat [Note: law enforcement is telling us this was much smaller than a full sized bat]. The boy was working at his afterschool job at the Myers Flat store when he was allegedly attacked. According to his aunt, Sara Buhler, the boy
was hit in the head with a baseball bat and suffered a compression skull fracture. He was rushed to the E.R. in Garberville where he suffered grand mal seizures, was unresponsive, and needed to be intubated. He was then flown to UC Davis and placed in the ICU.
