A 26-year-old Woodland man was arrested Sunday afternoon on charges of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, in connection with a double stabbing that wounded two West Sacramento men, police said.
Suspect Doon Saeturn returned to the scene of the stabbing on the 500 block of Walnut Street around 4:30 p.m. Sunday, several hours after the morning incident, said West Sacramento police Sgt. Roger Kinney. Neighbors notified police of the man’s presence, and Saeturn was taken into custody without a struggle, Kinney said.
“It’s unusual for a suspect to return to the scene of the crime, but not totally unheard of,” Kinney said.
Around 8:30 a.m., West Sacramento police received telephone calls reporting the stabbing of a man and his uncle.

Kinney said the suspect entered the West Sacramento home through the front door and allegedly stabbed the first victim repeatedly. Kinney said the victim’s uncle heard the struggle from a nearby room and entered the front room to help, where the suspect allegedly stabbed him as well.
Both victims, currently unidentified, were taken to UC Davis Medical Center immediately after the incident, and remain in serious but stable condition, said Kinney.
Police do not know the relationship between the victims and Saeturn. The case is currently under investigation.
