Skyler Stewart

The Crescent City Police Department is calling for assistance in their search to find a man suspected of attempting to kill his spouse.

On May 24, Crescent City police officers responded to a report of domestic battery on the 1000 block of Highway 101. Once they arrived, the victim told police 29-year-old Skyler Stewart had attacked her while she was sleeping. Stewart allegedly made threats to kill the victim and struck her in the face several times. Then, Stewart used a handheld torch to light a blanket on fire, which the victim was underneath, according to a May 24 press release from the CCPD.

The victim was able to get away from Stewart and put out the fire. In addition to the attack, Stewart allegedly stole the victim’s cell phone, so that she could not call 911.

Stewart currently has an active warrant for his arrest, due to violation of the terms of his probation. If you see Stewart, or know where he may be, contact dispatch at 707-464-4196. You can also message the CCPD facebook account or use the online reporting form located at
