A Juneau man ended up in the hospital with stab wounds from a box cutter after allegedly getting into a fight in the Mendenhall Valley early Thursday morning, according to a Juneau Police Department release.

JPD received a call at approximately 12:17 a.m. Thursday that a male was bleeding inside a residence in the 8900 block of Birch Lane. Inside the residence, police found an unidentified 54-year-old male with cuts to his torso and left arm.

Capital City Fire/Rescue transported the victim to Bartlett Regional Hospital for medical treatment. He has since been stabilized and released, according to a BRH spokesperson. JPD did not immediately return phone calls Thursday afternoon.

An investigation indicates that the male victim and 52-year-old Juneau resident David Frank Rose “got into a fight over a female,” the release states, described as a 26-year-old Juneau resident. It is alleged that Rose cut the male victim with a box cutter during the fight.

Rose was arrested for assault in the third degree. He was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center and held without bail. Alcohol appears to be a contributing factor in the incident.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information can call JPD’s non-emergency line at 586-0600.
