A 33-year-old Juneau man was arrested early Tuesday morning for allegedly strangling a woman in a domestic violence related case, police said.
The Juneau Police Department said in a release that Brody Flint was arrested for second- and third-degree assault. He was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
Police initially responded to the scene after receiving a 911 call at about 10:50 p.m. Monday, saying a woman had been assaulted. The release states that officers “ended up forcibly opening the door” at 1:06 a.m. Tuesday, and that they found Flint inside and arrested him.
“A key was used to unlock the door. The door failed to open due to a deadbolt. An officer used his body – a shoulder lunge” to open the door, JPD Public Information Officer Erann Kalwara told the Empire via email.
“JPD responded and contacted the woman and it was determined that Brody Flint had assaulted her,” the release states.
A JPD officer took the woman to Bartlett Regional Hospital for a medical evaluation and care. Kalwara said that the woman has since been released from the hospital.
