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.




  • That is awful when you cant even walk down the street without fear of getting robbed or tased wow eh

  • You can’t even go for a walk in broad day lite without carry mace,or a taser.THATS so fd-up.i grew up on 6th st.we I was a kid my grandparents would leave the doors un-locked,for our friends and family.which were there all the time.we have a big Italian family,my whole life I felt safe and loved.Not today,my mom now lives there and she’s been robbed,broke into and destroyed everything broke everything if they didn’t take it,my daughter too,us too my neighbor,and his neighbor too,took his truck too.and our doors bolted heavy these days,and no I’m armed,with a 9 iron .not much help for a tweaker with a gun still swinging

  • Sorry For your Mom G-Ma…Whats the answer, I sure don’t know, but its scary to think that walking down the street could result in bodily harm and loss of your money,I.D and credit cards…but at least we can say its better here than in the larger cities..I have 7 Grandbabies here in Humboldt ..worries me daily when they are out and about 🙁

    • I think the answer is in all of us.i love my town,there’s no place I’d rather be,but to be afraid and have to act like a bad guy to protect ourselfs,that’s the crime,to make us feel safe again is a real challenge here with meth Taking over.i Remember when drinking and smoking ciggs,was the worry.geeze I dream of those days.

  • My taser was stolen out of my car a few days ago by a tweek named william [edit]. He’s been on a crime spree the last week. Was probably him!
