As Their Child Looked On, Ukiah Couple Allegedly Assaulted a Man With Machete and Broomstick 

On June 9th, 2022, Ukiah Police Department investigators determined that a Ukiah man and woman ganged up on a man outside the Royal Motel using a machete and broomstick leaving the victim hospitalized with facial lacerations. 

Lieutenant Andrew Phillips confirmed that 43-year-old Ronald Feagin and 26-year-old Amy Woolsey have been booked into the county jail for their suspected involvement in the crime. Feagin faces attempted murder charges and Woolsey is accused of assault with a deadly weapon.

Aggravating an already brutal circumstance, Lieutenant Phillips disclosed that a child of Faigen and Woolsey’s watched the incident in its entirety and was released to Child Protective Services as a result.

Lieutenant Phillips told us UPD was originally dispatched to the Royal Motel on South State Street in regards to a physical fight between two adult males. Upon arrival, they found the 40-year-old victim in the area with lacerations on his head. 

Using eyewitness testimony and surveillance footage, investigators determined that Feagin and Woolsey were initially involved in a verbal dispute with the victim which then escalated. Feagin and the victim then began to physically fight which resulted in Feagin striking “the victim multiple times with a machete and the Woolsey struck the victim with a broom handle.” Bystanders separated the individuals.

Lieutenant Phillips told us, “More information will follow in a press release, as UPD’s Detectives are assisting with the investigation.”

Remember, the charges that Faigen and Woolsey face have not been proven in a court of law. In accordance with the legal principle of the presumption of innocence, any individual described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty
