Second homeless man attacked in Woodland

By From page A2 | May 24, 2013

For the second time this month, Woodland police are investigating an assault on a homeless man behind a vacant business.

Sgt. Steve Sexton said officers were dispatched shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday to the former State Theater building on Main Street to investigate reports of “subjects fighting with knives and baseball bats.”

A 57-year-old man was found later at the nearby Hotel Woodland with non-life-threatening injuries to his left arm and head, Sexton said. He was transported to Woodland Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Sexton said police are seeking suspect named Marcus, described as an African-American male, about 50 years old. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-661-7800.

Police also continue to investigate the May 4 stabbing of a 32-year-old homeless man that occurred behind a shuttered restaurant in the 900 block of Court Street. The suspects in that incident were described as two Latino heavyset males.
