Woodland resident arrest in West Sacramento double stabbing

Two people were stabbed multiple times Sunday morning in West Sacramento after answering the door.

Sgt. Roger Kinney with the West Sacramento Police Department said Doon Saetern, a 26-year-old Woodland resident, was arrested in connection to the stabbing.

Police arrested Saetern after he returned to the scene of the crime Sunday afternoon. 

Kinney said the victims, both men, were inside a home in the 500 block of Walnut Street when Saetern allegedly arrived at the victims' front door and stabbed the first victim when he opened the door.

A struggle between the two escalated onto the floor and into the home. According to Kinney, when the second victim came to see what the commotion was about, he was also stabbed. 

After several minutes, Kinney said Saetern allegedly fled the scene in a blue car.
