A Juneau woman was arrested for assault by Juneau Police Department officers after allegedly stabbing a man near Safeway early Sunday morning.
Ida Johana Sheakley, 32, was arrested for two charges of felony first-degree assault, said JPD Lt. Krag Campbell in a news release.
JPD received a report of a stabbing at 6:54 a.m. on the 300 block of Vintage Boulevard, Campbell said in the release. Initial reports said a 26-year-old man had been stabbed in the head and wrist. Capital City Fire/Rescue personnel responding to the call alongside JPD officers treated the victim, who police did not identify, and transported him to Bartlett Regional Hospital, where he was in stable condition at the time of the news release, Campbell said.
The victim had serious lacerations on the left side of his head and right wrist, Campbell said.
Officers contacted Sheakley, who was arrested without incident, Campbell said. The initial investigation showed the stabbing took place inside a vehicle, and Sheakley and the victim were known to each other.
Two other passaengers in the vehicle said that they had gone to the area to shop, or possibly because someone owed someone else money.
The suspect and the victim got into an argument about what was owed before the suspect stabbed the victim with a knife of an unreleased nature, Campbell said. The victim exited the vehicle and nearby witnesses called 911, Campbell said.
The knife JPD believes was used in the stabbing was located in the vehicle, according to police.
The case is still under investigation.
