2 men injured in fight over apple pie

FAIRBANKS — A Fairbanks man looking for a piece of pie the day after Thanksgiving has been charged with felony burglary and assault.

Fairbanks police say 26-year-old Kyle David Wilcox unsuccessfully tried to talk an east Fairbanks apartment neighbor into sharing an apple pie, and after a fight broke out, both received minor stab wounds.

The man with the pie told police that Wilcox appeared to be drunk as he sought a piece of the pie and forced his way into the apartment with another man.

The man in the apartment told police he defended himself with a steak knife and was wounded as he struggled with the intruders.

Wilcox remained jailed Tuesday with bail set at $15,000. The state court data base did not indicate Wilcox was represented by an attorney.
