Troopers: Nunapitchuk man stabbed father with ulu
A 21-year-old Nunapitchuk man faces half a dozen counts of assault, after Alaska State Troopers say he attacked three of his relatives in the Bethel-area village last weekend.
Troopers said in an online dispatch that the call which led to Dale Sallison’s arrest came in at about 7:15 p.m. Saturday, as “a report of a stabbing and strangulation.”
“Investigation revealed [Sallison] used an ulu to stab his father in the back shoulder,” troopers wrote. “Dale strangled [his brother] and broke a bedroom door. During the incident, Dale also assaulted [his mother].”
Sallison was held without bail on two counts of second-degree assault, one count of third-degree assault and three counts of fourth-degree assault, as well as a count of fifth-degree criminal mischief. All are crimes of domestic violence.
“Alcohol was a factor,” troopers wrote.
