Man arrested for stabbing in Penland Park
The Anchorage Police Department says a man was arrested in East Anchorage Friday night after stabbing another man.
Police were dispatched to a trailer home in Penland Park around 10 p.m. after someone called 911 to report they had been stabbed in the chest, according to a statement from APD.
When police arrived, they found four adults who had been drinking and were uncooperative, making it difficult to determine who stabbed the victim. After “enough evidence was obtained” showing a physical altercation had occurred, police arrest 51-year-old Farrell McCutcheon.
The victim was treated for what police described as a non-life threatening stab wound “made by a pocket knife.”
McCutcheon was charged with second- and fourth-degree assault and taken to the Anchorage Correctional Complex. He is being held on a $1,000 cash-corporate bond and a $1,000 performance bond.
