Man arrested for early morning assault downtown

Juneau Police arrested a 26-year-old man for assault early this morning (Friday), after finding another man with facial injuries downtown just after 4 a.m.

Lieutenant David Campbell says alleged victim, a 36-year-old man, was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital and later released.

“He had multiple lacerations to the top of his face, and he was very bloody and he had lots of contusions and abrasions, and swelling to his face,” Campbell says. “We’re still investigating the situation to see if any weapons were used or not.”

Campbell declined to release the victim’s name.

Just before 9:00 this morning, officers served a search warrant at an apartment in the 200 block of Franklin Street, where the assault allegedly took place.

Marcos Galindo was arrested and charged with two counts of assault. He was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center, where he is being held on no bail. Campbell says Galindo is originally from California and has only lived in Juneau for a short period of time.

He says investigators think alcohol was involved, based on interviews with Galindo and the alleged victim. The incident remains under investigation.
