Redding Police say another violent incident happened at Parkview Park in Redding, just a day after a reported stabbing at the same park.

Police say two men were beating one another with golf clubs at the part at around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday. The men were identified as Edmond Lee Jung, 38, and John Allen Workman, 51. Police say both men have a long history of arrests with Redding Police.

Responding officers say a machete was being used in the fight, and the suspects were swinging the machete and golf club back and forth. Police say the fight was over property. Both men were reportedly uncooperative with responding officers. A machete and hammer were recovered at the scene.

Police say Jung has been arrested dozens of times by the Redding Police Department. Jung is on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) for theft of a motor vehicle. Since June 10, 2015, Edmond Jung has been booked into the Shasta County Jail twenty six times for suspicion of committing a variety of crimes to include domestic violence, resisting arrest, battery on a peace officer, possession of drugs and paraphernalia, warrants and violations of probation. Jung was last arrested on multiple warrants for his arrest on June 1, 2018. He was held in custody for 3 days and 4 hours before being released on his own recognizance after a court hearing.

A search of Edmond Jung led to the discovery of a bag of methamphetamine and a glass smoking pipe. Jung was transported to a local hospital for a medical clearance and then booked at the Shasta County Jail for possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and a violation of PRCS.

John Allen Workman has been arrested and booked into the Shasta County Jail four times since October of 2017. His last arrest was on June 8, 2018, for a warrant for failure to appear. He was released the same day.

A case is being submitted to the Shasta County District Attorney's Office for charges against both Jung and Workman for assault with a deadly weapon. The Redding Police Department continues to try and improve safety in our local parks and encourages citizens to report criminal activity.

Separately, Redding Police say they are still searching for the suspect in monday night's stabbing at the park. More information can be found here.
