  • The dude fled that stabbed fled on a skateboard.

  • “…the victim and his friend had been skateboarding with three other men …”

    Men don’t ride skateboards.

    • Hahaha, at least one of them probably had a man bun also. Is it just me or is Arcata really stepping up on their stabbing stats?

  • Arcata is super stabby, it a well known fact, and has been for some time.

  • I`d still like to know how they sharpen their knives. This one must have been dull.

  • A white male in his 20’s, wearing dark clothing. Well that narrows it down. 🤔 I’m sure they will catch this guy in no time flat.🙄

  • Arcata = I’ llCutYa?

  • Once the permanent police chief is there, it should get better.

  • Rule of Law not Leftists

    Stabcata. Cause you know, leftists like their stabby stab stabs, doing it to those that don’t agree, and doing it in dark hoodies. Typical soyboy stuff for that town…

  • If it happened in Eureka they would have described the “men” as having graying hair with tattoos on their necks, riding BMX bikes and wearing long black leather trench coats.

    Arcata is one of those places, where nobody should ever get off the freeway… Kinda like Redding and Bakersfield and Stockton!

    Probably, all the “non stabbing” types should just get out of California entirely! Nice people don’t live in states where grown men ride skateboards and stab each other to express affection.

    Sure do hope your local hospitals can get staff in the future, after all the current people decide to retire and flee!

    It would be a shame if the whole region had to be abandoned to the pirates, the Sinaloa Drug Gangs, and the Black Market Growers and all the drunks… But wait! It already has been!

  • Liberals want America to be arcata square
