Detective Sgt. Todd Dokweiler of the Arcata Police Department confirmed that there was a stabbing near Arcata High School Saturday morning. Dockweiler declined to provide details at this time explaining that his office was still investigating but would release more information later in the week.

In the meantime, he said that there was no danger to the public as there were “no outstanding suspects.” The situation, he said, had been one of “mutual combat.” One person, Dokweiler explained, had been stabbed in the course of the incident. He did not release information on the status of the person who was stabbed.
