FPD: Girl, 16, stabbed in neck by teen on mushrooms
Fairbanks Police are investigating a stabbing Friday in which a teenage girl was stabbed in the neck, allegedly by a teen boy who was under the influence of psilocybin mushrooms.
Officers were called to a residence on Baranof Avenue Friday evening around 8:45 on reports of a stabbing.
FPD spokesperson, Yumi McCulloch, says a 16-year-old girl was stabbed in the neck and jumped out of a window of the home with her small child to call for help at a neighbor's home.
Travis Heard, 17, was found inside the residence under the influence of psychedelic mushrooms, McCulloch says. He was detained without incident and admitted to officers that he had been eating mushrooms and had lost touch with reality. He then said he "stabbed (the victim) in the neck to come back to reality".
The victim was taken to the hospital; McCulloch says her injury is not considered to be life-threatening.
Heard is charged with first-degree murder - intent to cause death.
