Sheriff’s deputies found as many as 16 people fighting at Monte Rio Beach with bottles, cans, sticks and knives when they responded around 6:40 p.m. Saturday, sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Crum said.

One group of people at the popular beach off of state Highway 116 spontaneously started yelling gang terms and started the fight with another group presumably from a rival gang, said Crum.

A 28-year-old San Francisco man and two Santa Rosa men, 22 and 25, were taken by ambulance to a hospital for treatment of head lacerations and bruises.

A 55-year-old Santa Rosa man suffered a cut hand and a 19-year-old Santa Rosa man was stabbed in the chest. Everyone who was injured was expected to survive, Crum said.

Deputies arrested a 17-year-old Petaluma boy on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, and a 16-year-old Santa Rosa girl was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery.

Further gang-related arrests were expected, Crum said.

  1. Probably more of those troublesome white people with their gangs and violence. Obviously more wonderful diversity is needed.

  2. Garbage communities deserve the riffraff that society has to offer.
    We need to offer more cash and gift card incentives for these ethnics to abort before burdening society any more with their rotten sperma loads.

    hey…i live about 1/4 mile from this beach……have NEVER seen anything but families and ” just folks ” kayaking and lounging around ! NO one, from what i read was from the area, and as far as ethnicities goes, the place, while open and diverse, is LITTERED with white, white, white families….FAMILIES !…….just about ALL you ever see…….so WHAT THE HELL YOU ARE INSINUATING is BULL !
