Woman arrested for cutting man with knife

She was charged with felony assault.

An 18-year-old woman was arrested for domestic-violence assault for allegedly cutting a man’s arms with a knife, police said.

Juneau Police Department said in a release Wednesday morning that Louisa Nathan-Jackson was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault, a felony, and taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

Police became aware of the case when a 24-year-old man went to Bartlett Regional Hospital for knife wounds on his arms at about 2:04 a.m. Wednesday.

”Officers learned that Nathan-Jackson and the man had been involved in an argument at their residence …” Lt. Krag Campbell said in the release. “During the argument, Nathan-Jackson grabbed a knife and cut the man across his left and right forearms.”

Police described the man’s injuries as a “severe” cut on his right arm that was three inches long and required sutures, plus “multiple superficial” cuts on his forearms. He was released from the hospital after treatment.

JPD said officers later executed a search warrant at the residence, located in the Mendenhall Valley, and recovered bloody clothing and a knife.
