McKINLEYVILLE, Calif. —
The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) is looking for three men they say entered a McKinleyville home, beat the resident with baseball bats, stabbed him in the chest and stole marijuana early Wednesday morning.
Around 3 a.m. on Dec. 5, deputies say the three men arrived at the victim's home and began physically assaulting him with metal baseball bats. The suspects demanded money and cannabis before getting away with over 60 pounds of cannabis trim and other items, according to the HCSO.
After a medical exam, officials said they found the victim suffered head and torso injuries as well as a stab wound to the chest. He was transported to a local hospital in stable condition, the HCSO said.
The three suspects are still on the loose and the sheriff's office is looking for any help from the public. They are described as:

- White male in his early 20’s, wearing dark blue jean shorts, a black jacket with a red liner, a black hat and a black neoprene face mask, carrying an aluminum baseball bat.
- White male in his early 20’s wearing all black clothing.
