REDDING, Calif. - After attempting to serve a man with paperwork on the Shasta College Campus the day before, several Redding Police Officers were punched on Tuesday when the man returned to the campus.

Police say on Monday, April 22, campus security attempted to serve David Wuco, 29, with paperwork ordering him to stay off campus while they investigated sexual misconduct allegations against him. He refused the papers and left campus.

Tuesday morning Wuco returned to the Redding campus and security immediately made contact with him. Due to him being on high-risk parole for assault with a deadly weapon, as well as having a violent history, Redding Police Officers responded to the college as well.

After asking Wuco several times to leave the campus, Officers attempted to physically remove him before he quickly stood and took a fighting stance. Police say he went on to punch multiple Officers in the face causing serious injury to three, who were treated at a local hospital.

Wuco was ultimately taken into custody, after additional Officers responded, and was taken to a local hospital for minor injuries before later being booked at the Shasta County Jail for battery, resisting Officers, and violation of parole.

Wuco was released from prison in November 2018 after serving five years for assault with a deadly weapon.
