UPDATE: At about midnight last night, the suspect was arrested without incident near Evergreen Road in Garberville. He was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility on assault with a deadly weapon and murder charges, and is being held without bail.

A be-on-the-lookout notice has been issued for a Garberville area transient accused of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

At about 6:30 p.m. yesterday, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a stabbing victim at Jerold Phelps Hospital in Garberville. The 50-year-old male victim had deep stab wounds to his face, chest, neck and hands, and when deputies arrived, he told them he didn’t know what happened.

Several witnesses say they did, however — the cops eventually determined that a fight had ensued between the unnamed victim and the suspect, 42-year old James Albert Rowe, a parolee who was considered to be homeless. He is described as a white male, 5 foot 11 inches in height, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

According to HCSO lieutenant Steve Knight in a release, witness accounts describe a fight taking place at 5:30 p.m. near Calico Cafe and Rays Food Place on Redwood Drive in downtown Garberville. Evidence on the scene, police say, is consistent with the witness statements.

The victim is still under treatment in the hospital for the injuries he sustained.

If Rowe is sighted, the HCSO urges members of the public not to approach him — they are asked to call them at (707) 445-7251, the Garberville Station at (707) 923-2762 or their Crime Tip line at (707) 268-2539.
