Juneau police, fire officials, hospital officials, the Juneau Crime Line and state troopers reported:

Thefts, lost/found items:

A man, 49, reported shortly after noon on Tuesday that there had been a theft from his apartment in the 9300 block of Glacier Highway. Investigation continues.

A man, 29, reported about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday that his light blue Trek 720 mountain bike had been stolen from Wood Duck Avenue. Estimated value was $200. There were neither leads nor suspects.

Police responded to a report of shoplifting at Alaskan & Proud market about 4 p.m. They cited a boy, 18, for shoplifting and then released him.

A woman, 28, reported about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday from Sixth Street that her black cloth purse with leopard print trim had been stolen.

Assault:

About 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, police witnessed an assault on South Franklin Street. They arrested a man, 23, for assault and lodged him at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center.

Fires:

Firefighters responded at 4:19 p.m. Tuesday to a fire on Kanat'a Street. They found smoke pouring from under the eaves of a two-story duplex. Firefighters and police investigated and found that a boy, 7, had been playing behind the duplex with a lighter and flammable materials. A mattress leaning against the structure caught fire, and then the structure itself caught fire. Quick action with a garden hose and fire extinguishers by nearby construction workers confined the blaze to the building's exterior. Their efforts kept it from spreading to the interior and attic, firefighters said. Damage was estimated at over $5,000.

Trespassing:

Police responded about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to a request for aid from the Glory Hole. A man, 43, was arrested for trespassing. Staff had repeatedly told the man to leave and served him written notice that he would be subject to arrest should he returned. He left once, but later returned. Alcohol was involved in the incident.

Vehicle accidents:

Police and an ambulance responded shortly before 8 a.m. today to a vehicle accident on Egan Drive inbound, near Salmon Creek and near the intersection with Channel Drive. Firefighters said that, as a precaution, one person was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital. The person (gender and age unknown) was discharged in good condition, according to a Bartlett spokesman. Additional details were not available.

Other:

After conducting a traffic stop shortly before 8 a.m. Tuesday on Egan Drive inbound, police arrested a woman, 33, for driving without a valid license. Police also cited the woman for driving at an unsafe speed. She was released at the scene. The vehicle was released to a man, 31, at the woman's request.
