Assault charges follow incident at nursing home

Authorities say a 53-year-old man is being charged with assault after sending an 81-year-old man to the hospital last week.

Police say the two men were involved in an altercation at Wildflower Court, a nursing home on Salmon Creek Lane. It appears they were both residents, an investigation found.

The reported injuries were non-life threatening.

Juneau Police Department this week forwarded the charges to the city’s attorney’s offices, which only deals with misdemeanor crimes. The names of the two men were not immediately available.
