Man stabbed with scissors in fight over cigarettes in Petaluma

Two Petaluma men got into a fist fight over cigarettes Tuesday afternoon, resulting in an investigation involving assault with a deadly weapon — a small pair of scissors, Petaluma police said.

No one was arrested as police are continuing to look into the incident, said Petaluma acting Sgt. Ryan Debaeke.

Officers were called at about 12:40 p.m. to the back of a gas station on North McDowell Boulevard.

They found a 28-year-old with a small cut to his right calf. Officers determined the victim believed another man had stolen some of his cigarettes and had started the fight.

During the fight the other man, 43, pulled out a small pair of scissors and swiped the victim's leg, Debaeke said.

Police didn't identify the two men, saying the case remained under investigation.

Neither wanted medical aid and didn't want to have the other arrested.
