The decedent from the stabbing homicide in Weott has been identified as 23 year old Jordan Dennis Antonsen, of Weott.
On Friday, October 7, 2016 at about 10:39 p.m. Humboldt County Deputies received a report of a disturbance at a residence on the 400 block of Newton Rd, Weott. While en route, Deputies were told one of the male subjects, (Jordan Antonsen), had been stabbed and driven to a local hospital. Deputies arrived at the Newton Rd residence to investigate. Deputies discovered Jordan Antonsen entered the home of a 47 year old male, uninvited. Once in the home, Antonsen instigated a fight with the 47 year old’s roommate. The 47 year old male objected to the activity verbally. Unprovoked, Jordan Antonsen rushed the 47 year old male and a physical fight ensued. The 47 year old male repeatedly told Jordan to stop and to leave the home. He also asked his roommate and another witness to call law enforcement. During the fight, Jordan was able to put the 47 year old male into a headlock. The 47 year old male was able to arm himself with a knife. Fearing for his life, he stabbed Jordan Antonsen in self-defense. Shortly thereafter, Jordan left the residence, and was later taken to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
Detectives were called to the crime scene and are investigating this incident.
