star 1080

On April 21, 2021, at about 7:12 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Hammond Trail Parking Lot near Letz Avenue in McKinleyville for the report of a robbery that had just occurred.

Deputies arrived at the location and contacted the 34-year-old male victim who exhibited minor injuries from the incident. The victim told deputies that he had fallen asleep in his vehicle when he awoke to two unknown male suspects physically assaulting him. The suspects removed the victim from his vehicle and demanded the victim’s wallet. At some point during the altercation, the suspects reportedly brandished a knife at the victim. The suspects stole personal belongings from the victim and then reportedly fled the area in a white SUV.   

The suspects are described as follows:

  • Suspect #1: A white male adult, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build, short hair and a clean-shaven face.
  • Suspect #2: A white male adult, approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall with a small build, a mustache and a beard.

The suspect vehicle is described as a white, possibly late-1990’s model SUV – similar to a Toyota RAV4 or Highlander- with Oregon license plates and an empty wheel mount on the back.

This case is still under investigation.

Anyone with information about this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.
