    Attacker Beaten With Candy Cane, Police Say
    Man Arrested In Del Paso Heights Incident

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A man who allegedly threatened neighbors with a knife on Thanksgiving was beaten with a large decorative candy cane wielded by a bystander, Sacramento police said.

    The incident began in Del Paso Heights when Donald Kercell, 49, became drunk and then got angry, Sgt. Norm Leong said.

    Kercell grabbed a knife at about 5:45 p.m. and went outside of a residence in the 3600 block of Dayton Street to confront neighbors, police said.

    Leong said Kercell swung the knife and went after some people, adding that some of those being chased suffered minor injuries.

    A bystander picked up a 2-foot-long candy cane decoration, smacked Kercell with it and disarmed him, Leong said.

    When police arrived, they found Kercell sprawled on a lawn.

    Kercell was later arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

    The person who used the candy cane to beat Kercell was not arrested, authorities said.

    Leong said it was not immediately clear why Kercell confronted his neighbors.
