Juneau police are looking for a man and a gun allegedly used in an assault and robbery earlier this week in the Costco parking lot.
One man is in custody for the New Year’s Day incident in which a 20-year-old man was reportedly stunned by a taser, punched and robbed.
Twenty-nine-year old Dustin Daley has been jailed on charges of 1st degree robbery, two counts of 4th degree assault and one count of theft in the 3rd degree.
Police are still looking for another man, who was reportedly wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, a black mask with the skull on it, and had a handgun.
Police say Daley and the unidentified man were in a four-door silver Dodge pickup with a broken driver’s side window covered in plastic. Police later found the truck and Daley as well as a Crown Royal bag containing what may be heroin, a white powder that may be another illegal drug, a marijuana pipe and marijuana. The mask was also recovered from the pickup.
Police did not release any information about the incident until Friday. They are asking for assistance in identifying the man with Daley.
They say anyone with information should log onto the Juneau Crime Line website and report their tip.
