Police: Juneau man is armed and dangerous, wanted for questioning in woman's assault
Police want to question 28-year-old Juneau resident Micah Nelson regarding an assault that left a woman with a head injury Tuesday afternoon. He is considered armed and dangerous and has a $100,000 warrant for his arrest, according to the Juneau Police Department.
A news release from the department states officers got a report about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday that a 33-year-old woman was in a car in a parking lot at the 9400 block of Glacier Highway and bleeding from the head.
Capital City Fire and Rescue took the woman to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment.
While there, the woman said she’d gone to the bank to make a deposit for her work. She said a man whom she knew followed her from the bank driving a black pickup.
She pulled into the parking lot and the man got into her car, the woman said. She told police the man had a gun and, at one point, took her keys from her ignition.
“When the female tried taking the keys back, the male threatened the female by saying if she didn't talk with him, he was going to shoot her and beat her up,” the release reads.
The man then punched the woman in the face and head while he was holding the pistol, police wrote. Her injury is not considered life-threatening.
The black pickup was later found unoccupied in the area of Rainbow Row.
Anyone with information on Nelson’s whereabouts is asked to contact JPD. Anonymous tips can be made at juneaucrimeline.com.
