Juneau Police say that a man who was a suspect in a stabbing on Friday is now in custody.
Wayne Walter Williams, 33, was arrested on the beach near Douglas Sunday afternoon. He’s being held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center with no bail.
Police say a 22-year-old woman at a residence on Simpson Avenue reported being stabbed multiple times by her brother Friday afternoon, but he had fled before officers arrived at the scene.
Police considered Williams to be armed and dangerous. The victim suffered fourteen stab wounds that were considered serious, but not life threatening.
