A man stumbling into Fortuna City Hall with a bleeding stab wound led to the arrest of a young woman on the south end of Fortuna this morning.

At approximately 11:03 a.m. this morning, an unnamed 57-year-old victim came to the front counter of the Fortuna Police Department holding the right side of his neck, which was gushing blood.

According to an FPD release, the victim, whose name was withheld, said he’d been stabbed in the neck by 23-year-old Randi Elizabeth Barton, who he cohabitates with at a home on the 3400 block of Rohnerville Road.


While FPD detectives immediately provided first aid, they questioned the victim, who turned over a knife blade with the handle broken off, the implement that he had supposedly been stabbed with. He was later treated and released from Redwood Memorial Hospital.

Law enforcement responded to their home and arrested Barton without incident. She was transported to Humboldt County jail and booked on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, battery on a cohabitant likely to produce great bodily injury, violation of her probation, possession of a controlled substance and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

  1. That’s an awesome mugshot.

    Folks may remember the announcement and subsequent wide-scale search for Ms. Barton that occurred when she was reported missing on August 23 of last year. She was located nearly 10 days later. (You may notice a difference in her appearance between the time the picture contained in the link was taken, and that of the above mugshot; a period of 5 months)

    Remarkably similar to the above incident, Ms. Barton was arrested by Fortuna police in August of 2008.

    According to the Ukiah Daily Journal/Times-Standard article of April 25, 2008:

    “A verbal argument led to violence Thursday morning after a 19-year-old woman allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the back three times with a steak knife, according to the Fortuna Police Department.

    Officers were called to the residence in the 3100 block of Smith Lane at about 10 a.m. Thursday, where the suspect, Randi Barton, was found hiding under a pile of clothing in the back bedroom’s closet, according to police.

    Officers arrested Barton on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence. She was booked into Humboldt County Jail and remained in custody Thursday afternoon.

    The victim was treated at Redwood Memorial Hospital, but was expected to recover from his injuries.

    ‘Officers learned that the stabbing was a result of a verbal argument that escalated into Barton stabbing the victim,’ police said.”

    Wow, Randi is or usually being a hooker at a bar in Eureka Old Town, she was a skank – did not clean herself “down there”. Eeaaww!

    Behavior that’s unfortunately dangerous for self and others. We might recommend, for starters, a short time in the pokey drying up, taking the time to think things over a bit and reconsider one’s options through counseling and treatment, and, oh, we don’t know, maybe some ixnay on the knife-play?

  5. Jack says:

    Holy! I saw Ms Barton blow some tweaker out back from Steve & Dave’s Bar on the 4th of Jan. She looks like a strung out ho-bag.
