Assault on SW Alaska
Sage advice from childhood on how to deal with a bully always went “just walk away”. There are times in life when this maxim just doesn’t help.
The victim of an assault on s.w. Alaskan St. early in the morning on Nov. 10 was walking out of a bar when a suspect cut the victim off with his dark plum/navy colored Audi A8. The suspect, a black male in his early 30’s of medium build with a goatee and dreadlocks, began yelling at the victim and then pulled out a gun and began making threats to the victim along the lines of “I’ll smoke you”. The victim defiantly said “go ahead and shoot me in the back” and proceeded to turn his back and walk away from the suspect.
At this point the suspect exited the Audi and made his way to the suspect. The suspect, unable to be talked into calming down, grabbed the victim by the shoulder and struck him in the mouth with his fist, knocking the victim to the ground. The suspect then got in his Audi and drove off in an unknown direction. The victim was later treated at Harbor View Medical for his injuries, which included fracturing his jaw and bruising to the face. The suspect remains unidentified.
Orange is the New Grey
An assault occurred in an elevator on the 4500 block near Jefferson Square. The victim, a woman, entered the elevator with a shopping cart where the suspect, a male in his 40’s, began a verbal altercation with the victim. Angrily, at one point the suspect pushed the cart at the victim. While the incident itself may not be very notable, what is noteworthy is the victim’s description of the suspect as a man “dressed in orange” who then drove off in an orange Honda Element. The suspect’s identity as well as his penchant for the color orange remains a mystery to all.
