JPD: 2 arrests after man robbed, kicked in the face

The Juneau Police Department arrested two men early Thursday after a robbery and assault reported in the Mendenhall Valley.

Late Wednesday, a 27-year-old man told police he’d been kicked in the face and his wallet and Kindle were stolen behind an unnamed business.

Police say Matthew Gilchrest, 30, and William Stauffer, 23, were detained on Mall Road and taken to the police station for questioning. Officers got a search warrant and found the Kindle in a backpack belonging to one of the men.

Online court records show Stauffer is charged with felony robbery and misdemeanor assault.
