Fairbanks Police and State Troopers respond to stabbing in Riverview Area
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - On Sunday, November 1st, the Fairbanks Police Department (FPD) and Alaska State Troopers responded to a 911 call received at 1:25pm from two residents in the Riverview Area saying they had been stabbed by their son, who is in his thirties.
Richard Sweet, Acting Chief of the FPD, explained that the two residents were able to get out of the house before dialing emergency.
“We responded with the officers on patrol, who quickly found out that the individual was still inside the house, but he wasn’t communicating with officers," Sweet said.
According to Sweet, at around 1:50, FPD contacted AST requesting assistance from the State Emergency Response Team. The individual was barricaded in the house, refusing to communicate with the team.
After receiving a search warrant for the residence and applying for an arrest warrant, the residence was breached and the subject taken into custody without incident.
The individual has been placed under arrest for two counts of assault in the 2nd degree. He will be processed in the Fairbanks Police Department before being booked at Fairbanks Correctional Center, according to Sweet.
The acting chief went on to state that two persons were extracted from the residence via a backside window.
We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
