Stabbing suspect in custody after briefly evading police

A 39-year-old man is in custody for allegedly stabbing another man Thursday night.

Lucas Schneider, of Juneau, allegedly stabbed a 44-year-old man multiple times Thursday evening, causing injuries that were not life-threatening, according to a Juneau Police Department press release. Schneider was later located and arrested for second-degree assault (a class B felony) and fourth-degree assault (a class A misdemeanor).

At 6:50 p.m., the 44-year-old Juneau resident called JPD reporting that Schneider was refusing to leave his residence and had also struck him physically. Shortly after that call, a woman called saying that Schneider had stabbed the initial caller.

Officers responded to the scene, in the 300 block of Fourth Street downtown. Schneider had left the residence and was nowhere to be seen. The 44-year-old was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital with multiple stab wounds, none of which were considered life-threatening. Following treatment, the man was released from the hospital.

A few hours later, at 1:23 a.m. Friday, JPD officers found Schneider in the downtown area and arrested him. Schneider was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center and held without bail.

This 2020 electron microscope image made available by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases shows a Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 particle isolated from a patient, in a laboratory in Fort Detrick, Md. Coronaviruses, including the newest one, are named for the spikes that cover their outer surface like a crown, or corona in Latin. Using those club-shaped spikes, the virus latches on to the outer wall of a human cell, invades it and replicates, creating viruses to hijack more cells. (NIAID / NIH)
