On Jan. 7, 2023, at about 5:30 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on the 5300 block of Alpine Court, in the county’s jurisdiction of Eureka, for the report of an individual attempting to gain entry into an occupied residence.
According to the reporting parties who were residents of the home, a family member, 37-year-old Travis Michael Hensley, had been harassing the residents and was not welcome at the home. While attempting to gain entry into the residence, Hensley reportedly removed a window screen then broke out a window of the home. Hensley fled the property prior to deputy arrival. No one was injured as a result of this incident.
Deputies located and arrested Hensley at his home. He was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm (PC 245(a)(1)), elder abuse (PC 368(b)(1)) and vandalism (PC 594(b)(1)).
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.
