On the 22nd of March 2013 at approximately 0549 hrs, Woodland Police Officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of Donnelly Circle for a report of a stabbing that had just occurred. Upon arrival, Officers found a 22 year old Woodland man, suffering from a single stab wound to his back.

According to the victim, he was walking back to the Donnelly Circle housing complex from the Quik Stop Market at E. Main St and Matmor Rd. As the victim was walking on Industrial Way, 4 Hispanic males, between the ages of 17 to 19, and wearing dark clothing, approached him. The victim said one of the suspects asked him for a cigarette, and when he began to reveal the pack of cigarettes, the suspects attacked him - punching him repeatedly about the head.

The victim said he turned to run northbound on Industrial Way and felt a strike to his back, which was later found to be a single stab wound. The victim ran northbound on Industrial Way and continued running to the north side of Donnelly Circle where he summoned the help of a citizen.

While speaking with the victim, AMR paramedics responded to treat him. The victim opted for a family member to drive him to Woodland Memorial Hospital for treatment of his serious injury.

This incident is still under investigation and anyone with information is encouraged to call the Woodland Police Department (530) 661-7800.
