The father and son agreed to meet with officers at the Wedgewood Apartments. The 16-year-old victim, contacted police to say he did not want to press charges despite having a cut lip. The suspect said they were
wrestling around and did not mean to hurt each other. The suspect also had a cut lip, but did not want to press charges. He admitted that he had been drinking alcohol earlier in the day before the confrontation and provided a breath sample, blowing a .087. He was cited for underage drinking and was trespassed from UAF property.
Keeping it in the family
March 16- Alaska State Troopers requested that UAFPD respond to a report of an intoxicated 18-year-old woman who was swaying on Sandvik Street. The woman appeared lost and was pulling on car doors. Two campus officers saw two Native women at the nearby on the street. One of the women said she had just met the intoxicated woman and was waiting with her for her cab to arrive. The other woman appeared to be heavily intoxicated as she had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. They spoke to her in the patrol vehicle and she took a preliminary breath test, blowing a .209. While one officer was speaking to her, two individuals approached the other officer to say that they had seen the girl attack another girl in front of one of the Parkwest Apartments.
An officer walked over to the apartment and found a 19-year-old woman slumped over outside. She was intoxicated, incoherent and had a bloody nose. They brought back the 18-year-old woman back to the station and they were unable to reach her parents. Through further investigation they found out that the two women were cousins. Police transported both of them to the Fairbanks Memorial Hospital to check their well being. The 18-year-old woman was transported to the Fairbanks Youth Facility, where she will be charged with domestic violence assault in the fourth degree and she was cited for consuming alcohol as a minor. The 19-year-old was transported to the Fairbanks Correctional Center and charged with habitual minor consuming of alcohol.
A slap on the shoulder, ouch
March 16- A Community Service Officer was on patrol at an SRC dance when a man came up and slapped her extremely hard on the left shoulder. The CSO said he knocked
the air out of herand said he was glad to see security was there. The officer reported that she was not injured or placed in fear, but kind of irritated at the way he rudely contacted her. The man may have been intoxicated as he had slurred speech. The man left her alone after making eye contact and the officer did not pursue assault charges. He was in his fifties and was not seen in surveillance cameras, so police do not have a suspect.
