SUSANVILLE – On July 27, 57-year-old Tobie Guffee attempted to enter a residence on Johnsonville Road.

The suspect broke a sliding glass door with a brick. Then he attacked the resident with a pitchfork and stabbed the victim in the arm.

The 88-year-old resident, in his legal attempt to defend his home, shot Guffee once. The suspect ran outside and away.

At first deputies were unable to locate Guffee.  Eighteen hours later deputies nabbed him around Russell Avenue.

Guffee was “booked into Lassen County Jail on various charges including attempted murder.”
