Three people were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after Anchorage Police say a man allegedly used either a broken bottle or chain to hurt each of them Sunday afternoon.

APD spokesperson Renee Oistad said at 3:21 p.m., police responded to the Black Angus Inn at 1430 Gambell Street in reference to a disturbance.

"Initial indications are that a group of people were drinking in a room at the inn when one of them broke a beer bottle and stabbed an adult male and adult female in the head," Oistad wrote in a Nixle Sunday. 

The suspect, now identified as 29-year-old Henry M. Luther, left the room and found a chain which he used to hit another female in the head who was walking down the hallway of the Inn, according to Oistad. 

When Luther attempted to flee the building, two security guards chased after him. 

"As they were running, the suspect was hitting parked cars with the chain," Oistad wrote. "The security guards caught up to the suspect. During the struggle of trying to get the suspect into cuffs, one of the guards fired a shot from his handgun."

No one was hit by the gunshot. 

Police located Luther and the guards in the area of 14th Avenue and Fairbanks Street. All three were taken to APD for questioning. 

Luther is charged with three counts of second-degree assault, five counts of third-degree assault, one count of fourth-degree assault and two counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief.

Luther was not arraigned Monday, as he refused to be transported to court. 

The investigation is ongoing.
