Man wanted in mall security guard's assault
Police are looking for a fourth suspect in the assault of a security guard at the 5th Avenue Mall last week.
Around 2:30 last Monday afternoon, Anchorage Police were called to the 5th Avenue Mall on reports that a security guard had been assaulted. APD spokesperson Renee Oistad says a group of four young men-- who had been banned from the property in the past-- were damaging an indoor sign when they were confronted by the security guard.
One of the men, who APD identified as 20-year-old Tre'donnis Washington, punched the security guard in the face, causing damage to his nose.
Oistad says 18-year-old Paul Bates charged the security guard and attempted to take his phone. Bates was arrested Monday, March 5, and charged with fear assault, trespassing and criminal mischief.
Jerry Willingham, 19, was located by police after the incident. Oistad says he challenged the security guard to a fight and refused to leave when ordered to do so. Willingham was arrested and charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct and resisting.
Collin Bush, 20, was also located by police after the incident. Though he wasn't involved in the security guard's assault, he was not allowed at the mall and was arrested for trespassing.
Washington is the only suspect still at-large in connection with the incident. Arrest warrants for assault, trespass and resisting have been issued.
Oistad says Washington is 5-foot-9 and weighs 145 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
If you have information on his whereabouts, you're asked to call APD.
