Case or Incident: #200115-001
On 01/15/20, at about 2:04 AM, the Juneau Police Department was notified that a 24-year-old male had gone into the emergency room at the hospital with knife wound on his arm.
Officers went to the hospital and spoke with the man, as well as his 18-year-old girlfriend, Louisa Nathan-Jackson, about the cause of the injury. Officers learned that Nathan-Jackson and the man had been involved in an argument at their residence, located in the 9600 block of Amalga Street. During the argument, Nathan-Jackson grabbed a knife and cut the man across his left and right forearms.
The man sustained multiple superficial cuts on his left and right forearms; as well as a more severe cut on his right forearm that was approximately three inches long and required sutures. After receiving medical treatment, the man was released from the hospital.
Nathan-Jackson was placed under arrest for assault in the 2nd degree, a class B felony offense. Nathan-Jackson was taken to the jail and held without bail.
Officers later served a search warrant at the residence on Amalga Street. Inside the residence they located bloody clothing and a knife that is believed to have been used during that assault.
