Fight involving fence posts ends in two arrests

Two Grass Valley men ended up going to jail after a fight reportedly involving fence posts Saturday night.

Police were dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Stennett Street at about 7:30 p.m. for a report of a physical fight involving weapons, said Grass Valley Police Sgt. Joe Matteoni.

Several people were located in the street, including a man who was bleeding from the left forearm and who had bruising to his face, Matteoni said.

The victim reportedly told police officers two men hit him with fence posts. His brother, Harold Gustaf Anderson, 38, reportedly had hit him in the arm, while William Richard Weeks, 59, reportedly hit him in the face.

The victim said he did not know why they hit him and the other two men reportedly gave no explanation.

Weeks and Anderson were both booked into county jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and each were being held in lieu of $25,000 bail.
