Juneau Police are investigating an incident over the weekend that resulted in two men going to the emergency room with knife wounds.
JPD Spokeswoman Cindee Brown-Mills says a 45-year-old man claimed he woke up Saturday evening after his 49-year-old friend stabbed him in the arm, allegedly over a theft. In the ensuing struggle the older man also received cuts to his face. Bartlett Regional Hospital staff reported the incident to police at about 7 p.m. Saturday.
Officers interviewed both men, but did not make any arrests. Brown-Mills says charges likely will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s office.
Police believe alcohol was involved in the incident, which happened in the 300 block of 4th Street downtown.
