Suspect in baseball bat attack turns himself in
Anchorage police have taken a man into custody after he reportedly beat two people with a baseball bat in a Carrs parking lot Wednesday night.
Police had sought 63-year-old Michael A. Allen on multiple criminal charges before he turned himself in Thursday.
According to a statement from APD, officers responded to the Carrs on Gambell Street at 7:16 p.m. for a report of two men arguing over money. Police say Allen -- who allegedly borrowed money from the male -- pulled a bat out of his car, threatened the victim and then struck him with the bat several times.
"One of the blows left the victim with a deep laceration on the side of his head," police wrote.
Allen also swung the bat at a woman who was attempting to get his license plate number.
"Allen swung the bat at the female, and missed, but then got into his car and drove directly at the female. In fear of being hit, she attempted to move out of the way but she was still struck on the leg by the car; she sustained minor injuries and was not transported to the hospital," police said.
The male victim was taken to the hospital for treatment on his head wound and is expected to survive.
A felony arrest warrant was issued for Allen on three counts of third-degree assault, plus single counts of second-degree and fourth-degree assault.
