On 2-25-13 at approx. 0200 hrs., Woodland Police officers were dispatched to the area of Third St and Lincoln Ave regarding a report of a vehicle intentionally striking a subject.  When officers arrived on scene they determined that several subjects were involved in an altercation at the Stag.  When the subjects left the Stag they were confronted at the corner of Bush and First St, where a physical fight ensued.  The victims fled from the area. 

On Lincoln Ave just east of Second St.,  the victims from the Stag met up with a former classmate, Ernesto Arellano.  Arellano was a 22 year old Woodland resident, who began walking with the other subjects along the northcurb on Lincoln Ave.  When a silver vehicle driving eastbound on Lincoln Ave in westbound lanes along the north curbline struck Arellano from the rear.  Arellano was thrown forward into the sidewalk.  The vehicle was last seen driving southbound on Third St.  The victims of the confrontation at the Stag recognized the vehicle as the same one the suspect entered at that location.

Arellano sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to UCD Medical Center.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic Male adult 6'0" tall weighing approx. 150 pounds with short dark hair.  He was wearing a light-grey long sleeve button-up shirt wit ha white tank top and suspenders underneath.
