February 17, 2014 at approximately 1050 hours, Woodland Police and Fire personnel were dispatched to Woodside Park at 1615 Cottonwood St. regarding a possible stabbing. Emergency responders located a 29 year old male Sacramento resident who had a superficial wound to his throat. Medical personnel examined the victim but he required no first aid. Upon further investigation it was determined that the victim was attacked by a known male assailant with an unknown weapon. The known suspect both physically assaulted the victim and attempted to run him down with his vehicle in the park. The suspect was not successful and immediately fled the area. The park was extremely busy at the time with patrons but no one else was injured. This case is currently under investigation by the Woodland Police Department and no further infomation is being released at this time.
