EUREKA - One man is transported to the hospital after an alleged assault with a hatchet.
Just before 5:30 Tuesday evening, Eureka Police responded to the Budget Motel on 4th Street. Law enforcement says several subjects were engaged in an argument. One man was taken to St. Joseph Hospital with unknown injuries. No arrests have been made at this time.
This isn’t the first time incidents like this have happened in this part of town. EPD had been called nearly 200-times for a variety of incidents over this past year.
Captain Steve Watson said there is a process the city will go through with their motel ordinance to deal with the issue. He stressed this was very early in an active investigation and much is still needed to be done.
