On Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at about 6:40 PM Woodland police officers were dispatched to the 500 block of Saunders Way for fight between two men involving a hammer. 

When officers arrived both involved parties were already separated.  A 55-year-old male Woodland resident was bleeding slightly from his head.  He complained that the suspect had struck his head with a hammer during a dispute.  The victim refused medical treatment at the scene for a non-life-threatening injury.  

Officers arrested 37-year-old Woodland resident Paul Whiteleather for assault with a deadly weapon.  He was booked at the Yolo County Jail.
