Juneau police investigating downtown stabbing incident Saturday

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.
