Police are investigating the stabbing of a man Wednesday morning near Woodland High School.
Officers were dispatched to the 100 block of West Beamer Street at 10:24 a.m regarding a report of a stabbing that had just occurred. They arrived to find a 26-year-old Woodland man suffering from a single stab wound to his right tricep, according to a Police Department news release.
The man, who was treated at the scene by paramedics, told officers that he was standing in the front yard of his home when a group of five or six Latino men ran toward him yelling obscenities. The group reportedly came from the area of the high school parking lot.
The victim told police that he turned to run back to his house and discovered that he had been stabbed in the arm. The man said his assailants fled back to the student parking lot and left in a dark-colored pickup truck.
Police said the victim later drove himself to Woodland Memorial Hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening stab wound.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the Woodland Police Department at (530) 661-7800.
