On November 16, 2020, the Eureka Police Department’s Community Safety and Enhancement Team (CSET) responded to St. Joseph Hospital for the report of an assault which occurred at an encampment south of Pound Road in Eureka.  Based on the investigation, it was determined Raelee Childers (33 of Eureka) and the female victim were involved in a dispute over a relationship. Childers struck the victim on the arm with a baseball bat causing significant injury. 

Childers and the victim are known to each other and it does not appear to be a random assault.  On November 17, 2020, Childers was located by CSET and transported and booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for assault with a deadly weapon causing serious bodily injury.  

This is an on-going investigation.  Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is asked to contact CSET MIST Officer Swanson at 707-441-1319.
