A man who allegedly physically assaulted a woman in the Safeway parking lot in August has been indicted for three counts of felony assault.
Christopher Ray Netling, 29, was indicted Thursday and is slated to be arraigned on Monday in Juneau Superior Court, according to charging court documents.
Police say Netling was choking a woman in a vehicle in the grocery store’s parking lot when he was confronted by Juneau Police Department officers Hannah Malone and Thomas McGrann, who were responding to a 911 call about the incident.
The officers attempted to talk to then subdue Netling, but Netling allegedly armed himself with a knife, leading one of the officers to shoot him twice in the abdomen. Netling was medevaced to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for emergency treatment.
Netling’s case is tentatively slated to go to trial in January.
