Woman Arrested After Allegedly Bludgeoning Ukiah Police Officer with 8-Pound Rock


The following is a press release issued by the Ukiah Police Department. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:

On 2/23/23, UPD Officers responded to the intersection of W. Perkins St. and S. School St. for a report of a  female transient causing a disturbance. Upon arrival a solo officer contacted the suspect, Rachael Seivertson.  Seivertson was known to this officer from numerous prior contacts. She was a known transient in Ukiah and was known to be on CDC parole for robbery.  

The officer considered Seivertson’s behavior to be erratic. The officer attempted to speak with her, but she could not engage in a normal conversation. Her body was fidgety and she could not form a normal/reasonable sentence. The officer suspected she was under the influence of a stimulant, most likely methamphetamine.  

While attempting to speak with Seivertson, she stood up and attempted to walk away. She walked less than 10  feet away and the officer took a few steps to follow her. Seivertson quickly stopped, bent over and picked up a  large rock which was placed on the curb. Seivertson then quickly spun around and threw the rock into the officer’s face, colliding with the officer’s left side of his upper lip. Seivertson then continued to punch the officer on the face. The officer immediately started bleeding heavily but was able to wrestle Seivertson to the ground. While on the ground, Seivertson was placed on her stomach and handcuffed.  

The rock was recovered at the scene. The rock weighed approximately 8 pounds and was about the size of a  football.  

The officer was transported to the emergency room via ambulance. He suffered a laceration on his upper lip  which required 6 stiches. Seivertson was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, battery with great bodily injury on a peace officer and a parole violation. She was booked at the Mendocino County  Jail.

The Ukiah Police Department would like to thank the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Bailiffs who ran to assist the officer and assist in the handcuffing of Seivertson.

  1. Take a real gook look around Ukiah. What we are doing is not working and our families and law enforcement are paying the price. Throw the book at her please.

  2. Foolish police need control. When someone does not follow their orders they become agitated. Don’t push crazy people who have nothing to lose. He should have called back up before following her. I’d love to see the bodycam of this, I’ll bet it does not match the paperwork.

    • Are you writing this after you took a hit from your crack pipe provided from the county and with your free phone that was also provided from the county Doug?

      • The homeless fill our courts at taxpayer expense. One hour in court employs 5 to 10 county workers who draw a wage and benifits from tax payer. The Jim Crow laws against the homeless cause too much crime that increases this law and order effect. No different than Nazi Germany

      • Through I’m glad he is okay and the situation did not Escalade into something worse but I do hope she gets to help she needs before she gets out.

  3. People are demon posessed they are manifesting everywhere because the body of Christ needs to WAKE UP and start delivering the people who DESIRE to get free!

    • The pastors are all busy dancing around the truth. As they attempt to build a club. That supports them They wont talk about demons it scares the sheeple away. Modern christians are all for show

    • An orange jumpsuit cost taxpayers as much as a Harvard education each year. Wake up people, we live in a police state.
