The attacker was caught on camera running away from the scene by passerby, Terry Finigan.

“I always have my camera ready,” Finigan said, “I saw all these people screaming and yelling, so I just followed him for a while.”

Kistler was chased by a group of observers towards Safeway, where he hid under a house. Arcata Police Department’s K-9 unit arrived on scene and apprehended Kistler.

“With the aid of K-9 ‘Baron’, officers were able to locate the suspect hiding under an occupied residence,” An APD press release said. “After refusing numerous commands to come out from under the residence, the K9 was deployed and the assault suspect was quickly taken into custody.”

Kistler, a Eureka resident, was already on court ordered probation.
