A 20-year-old man who was stabbed early Thursday morning in Douglas is recovering from his injuries in the hospital’s intensive care unit, according to police.

Lt. David Campbell, a public information officer with the Juneau Police Department, said in an email exchange the victim is under observation at Bartlett Regional Hospital for superficial wounds.

The man suffered one stab wound to his left arm and another on the left side of his torso, Campbell said.

Police are not releasing his name.

Police said in an earlier statement they responded to the stabbing in the area of Crow Hill Drive in Douglas around 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

An investigation revealed the two men got into a fight, which culminated with the stabbing.

Alcohol was involved, police said in the statement.

Police identified a suspect and is forwarding charges to the District Attorney’s office.

Since there was no arrest, JPD is not releasing the suspect’s name, Campbell said.
