JPD arrest man after stabbing

Police say man was found with a knife.

A Juneau man was arrested Thursday night after allegedly stabbing two men.

Jay McCrumb, 47, was arrested on charges of first-degree robbery, two counts of third-degree assault and two counts of fourth-degree assault, in the 1800 block of Northwood Drive, according to a press release from Juneau Police Department.

McCrumb was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center and is being held without bail, according to the press release.

An argument over a bottle of vodka led to a suspect attacking two other individuals with a knife, injuring both men in their arms, according to JPD. Alcohol appeared to be a factor.

One of the injured men called emergency services, reporting that he and the other man had been stabbed, according to the press release. JPD and Capital City Fire/Rescue responded. Both injured men were treated at the scene for superficial wounds but did not require hospitalization, said Lt. Krag Campbell.

JPD did not release of the names of the men who were stabbed. JPD officers arrested McCrumb, according to JPD, after finding him in the apartment with a large knife on his person.

McCrumb has been charged with misdemeanors a number of times in the past, according to public records.
