Black Friday was black and blue in Sacramento

No, not that kind of ‘Family Feud.'

All families fight. But not all families use knives or baseball bats when doing so.

The day after Thanksgiving proved a fraught one for Sacramento police and four city-dwelling families who solved their disputes the old-fashioned way. Blood relatives were bludgeoned, stabbed and booked as officers responded to two family disturbances and a pair of all-out assaults involving adult siblings. The two more violent confrontations occurred within minutes of each other the morning of November 29 in different parts of the city, police logs show.

Around 8:30 a.m. that Friday in a north Sacramento neighborhood on Del Paso Boulevard, police arrested one individual for allegedly striking an adult sibling with a baseball bat. Roughly 20 minutes later, a stabbing brought officers to the door of a residence in Parkway-South Sacramento. Police believe a woman used a knife to fend off her brother, who was assaulting her at the time of the incident. Police arrested the unnamed man at a nearby residence and booked him into county jail after his wounds were treated at an area hospital.

Arrests were also made in two separate family disputes reported that day in north Sacramento, including one that resulted in the granting of an emergency restraining order.
