On Feb. 12, 2023, at about 6:07 p.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence on the 1100 block of Hayes Road in McKinleyville for the report of a stabbing.
Deputies contacted the suspect, 24-year-old Marrissa Marrie Nelson, outside the residence. While deputies spoke with Nelson, the victim, a 50-year-old male, arrived at the residence exhibiting multiple stab-related injuries. The victim was transported to a local hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.
During their investigation, deputies learned that Nelson and the victim had been involved in an argument earlier that evening. At some point during this argument, Nelson reportedly stabbed the victim multiple times.
Nelson was arrested and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on charges of assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm (PC 245(a)(1)).
