Police arrest two men following Saturday morning stabbing

The victim is in stable conditions after being beaten and stabbed.

Juneau police arrested two men in connection with a stabbing of a third man on Saturday morning, according to a JPD spokesperson.

JPD received a call at 7:34 a.m. Saturday after the caller saw a man bleeding and unresponsive on the 6500 block of Glacier Highway, said Lt. Krag Campbell in a press release. Police located the 44-year-old man, who had been beaten badly and stabbed several times, Campbell said.

Police also found 41-year-old Peter Kozeroff and 42-year-old Gregory Kozeroff, as well as a 21-year-old woman, who police did not identify, in the residence. The three men had been drinking at the residence before an argument broke out, allegedly resulting in a fight, in which the victim was beaten and stabbed, Campbell said.

The man was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital, where he’s in stable condition, Campbell said. The victim has two fractured eye sockets, three stab wounds to the back, a punctured lung and multiple suspected fractured ribs.

Peter Kozeroff was arrested for first-degree assault, a Class A felony, which can result in a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, according to JPD. Gregory Kozeroff was arrested for second-degree assault, a Class B felony, which can result in up to 10 years in prison.

Both were taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center and held without bail, Campbell said.
