Break up gone bad: Man stabbed during fight with girlfriend

Breaking up is hard to do, but in this case, it ended in a stabbing.


Police say they are searching for a 36-year-old Juneau woman who apparently stabbed her boyfriend in the arm during a fight about the status of their relationship Monday morning.

“They were going through a break up, and the lady picked up a knife and stabbed the man in the left forearm,” said Juneau Police Department spokesman Lt. David Campbell. “When we got there, she was gone. We’ve been actively looking for her since the incident.”

Campbell said the man’s injuries weren’t life threatening. The doctor reported the wound was about an inch to an inch-and-a-half long, and a quarter-inch wide, Campbell said. He didn’t know how deep it was.

The disturbance took place at the man’s trailer on Sherwood Lane at about 3:30 a.m. Monday. Responding officers applied pressure to the man’s wound, and he was taken to the hospital. The man was only identified as a 46-year-old Juneau resident.

Police have several leads on where the woman may be, Campbell said. Police are not releasing her name until an arrest is made.

Campbell said he did not know whether the woman sustained any injuries because she hasn’t been found yet. He said alcohol was a factor in the case.
