APD arrests 32 year old Eureka man for alleged stabbing of a 64 year old Eureka man at the Arcata Coop

On 11/09/2016 at 11:48 am, officers of the Arcata Police Department responded to the report of a male subject who had just been stabbed in the neck in front of the Arcata Co-Op at 811 I Street. Witnesses on scene reported that the suspect, later identified as 32-year-old Justin Crumbley of Eureka, fled on foot, west from the business. Witnesses followed Crumbley to an office building at 890 L Street where he entered the business and hid. 

Officers arrived on scene and quickly established a perimeter.  All employees were evacuated and officers began efforts to verbally contact Crumbley inside the building. These efforts were unsuccessful and Arcata Police K-9 "Baron" responded to the scene. A small team featuring "Baron" entered the building and placed the suspect into custody without further incident for P.C. 245(a)(1) - Assault with a Deadly Weapon. 
The victim, a 64-year-old Eureka man, is being treated for his injuries but is in stable condition.

  1. I can verify that this event actually did happen because I videotaped the aftermath, which can be seen in my video. I'm sure that everyone else is wondering the same thing that I am - who is the victim, why was he stabbed, and why has the media been silent on the motive or the identity of the victim? There literally hasn't been a single article updating us or providing any more information on this incident since the day of the incident.
