2 men arrested for rear-ending truck, attacking driver
The Anchorage Police Department arrested two men suspected of causing a vehicle collision, then allegedly attacked the driver of the truck they hit.
A little before midnight on Dec. 19, a driver of a Chevrolet truck was rear-ended by a red Honda while stopped at the intersection of Minnesota Drive and Spenard Road.
The driver of the Chevy got out to check for damage when two men, who were later identified as 24-year-old Jordan Campbell and 24-year-old Vidal Burney, exited the Honda. The release states Campbell and Burney approached the driver, got aggressive and started hitting him.
At some point during the altercation, Burney allegedly hopped in the truck, stole a handgun off the front seat, then got back in the Honda and drove to the nearby Holiday gas station. Campbell ran over to Burney and they drove off.
According to the release, the victim had visible injuries but did not need medical assistance.
Just after 1 a.m. on Dec. 20, an officer with the Impaired Driving Enforcement Unit saw the red Honda near Spenard Road and McRae Road. The officer followed the vehicle until there were more units available, then police pulled over the car at the same Holiday gas station the suspects left an hour before.
Burney and Campbell were both arrested and taken to the Anchorage jail.
Campbell was charged with robbery, theft and assault. Burney was charged with robbery, theft, assault and felon in possession of a firearm.
APD stated neither the alleged attackers nor the victim knew each other prior to the car crash.
