On January 9, 2019, at about 10:40 p.m., Humboldt Bay Fire and the Eureka Police Department responded to a residence on the 800 block of Summer Street for the report of a porch on fire. A resident was able to extinguish most of the fire before it spread.

A witness described seeing a male throw gas on the porch and light it on fire before walking away on foot. During the investigation, enough information was obtained to identify and locate the suspect.

Officers responded to an apartment on the 100 block of W. Del Norte Street and contacted the suspect, Asika Nicks (34 of Eureka). Nicks was transported and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for arson and probation violation. Anyone with information or surveillance is asked to call the Eureka Police Department. This is an ongoing investigation and further information will be released when appropriate.



  • Looks like he has a natural tattoo just on the side of and under the right eye.

  • So if somebody points our local law enforcement to the direction of where some guy that lights a porch on fire in a tweeker battle downtown they do something. Yet you can run over kids, hid the murder weapon lazily in your yard with a tarp, and everyone in the whole town knows what happened…but that’s fine nobody detained….

    When a porch gets more justice than two murdered little girls really makes you question things…..

  • Damn that guy looks like some ISIS dude 🙁

    • Willie Caso-Mayhem

      And how would you know what an ISIS dude looks like?

    • [edit] he’s black, not Middle Eastern 😂😂 his family is originally from Trinidad.

      Think before you speak, Mrs Hughes. Don’t just talk about Jesus all day, walk the walk.

      • When someone says the perp here looks like an ISIS dude, well he could pass for one in my book too. Dark complected, has the jihadi look goin on, tattoo signifying a violent psyche, BROWN skin and a wife beater shirt. Yeah. Looks just like an ISIS dude. I’m sure a few dipshits from Trinidad joined ISIS too. They come from all over ya know. Only a truly ignorant fool looking for a fight would waste the time to jump on here and insult a commenter who was repulsed by this criminals’ actions and his look. To someone else, he might look like Disappointings’ butt buddy, or daddy. Who knows?!

        This site used to be a pleasant place to go and have a rational, pleasant experience. It has recently become a hiding place for some very rude, drug addled, mouthy, ignorant folks. You know, the type LOCO likes. A click is a click, right? Damn, I miss Ernie and the way it used to be. His wisdom and wit is missed here.

        Hang in there Kym.

  • Was she Worth it dumdfuk

  • Domestic terrorism

    Was he yelling allahu akbar?

  • Isn`t “allahu akbar” the Arabic version of “excuse me”? I believe it`s appropriately used when one lets a noisy fart in public.

  • “God is the most great” but that would still work for a noisy fart in public in my book.

  • It sounds to me like there is more racist lames posting comments here then those of any kind of intelligent’s…..
