A Juneau man has been arrested for allegedly stabbing three people late last night at the Super 8 Motel on Trout Street.
The victims were treated at Bartlett Regional Hospital, according to a police news release. Their names and conditions were not released.
Officers say about ten people were partying in a room at the motel early this morning (Friday), when a fight broke out just after 1:30 a.m. A 25-year-old man was stabbed twice in the torso. A 32-year-old man received a 3-inch cut to his right forearm, and a 22-year-old woman had a superficial cut to her left hand.
Witnesses said 32-year-old Charles Alan Abbott was responsible for the stabbing. He and a 23-year-old woman were detained near the motel. The woman turned over a bloody knife to officers, who placed Abbott under arrest.
He’s charged with one count of Assault in the 2nd Degree, and two counts of Assault in the 3rd Degree. He was booked at Lemon Creek Correctional Center on no bail.
Police say alcohol was involved in the incident, which remains under investigation.
