TCSO: Man arrested for stabbing in Weaverville after hit by vehicle
WEAVERVILLE, Calif. - A Trinity County man was arrested on felony assault charges after authorities said he stabbed another man at a Weaverville business, according to the Trinity County Sheriff's Office (TCSO). During the evening of Nov. 1, a man was stabbed "at or near" a downtown Weaverville business, the TCSO said. Deputies responded to the area and began to search for the suspect, Charles Lambertsen. Deputies said they found Lambertsen and apprehended him, but only after he was accidentally struck by a vehicle. The car that struck the suspect was not associated with law enforcement whatsoever, according to officials. Lambertsen was taken to an area hospital for medical treatment before being transported to the Trinity County Jail where he was booked on two charges, including assault with a deadly weapon (non-firearm). During the investigation, deputies said they discovered that Lambertsen had become "unruly" at a downtown Weaverville business, and that the victim was trying to help staff at the business. TCSO also said that during contact with law enforcement, Lambertsen appeared to be under the influence of potential methamphetamine. The victim remains in stable condition at an area hospital, according to authorities.
