MOUNTAIN VILLAGE, Alaska-The Alaska State Troopers in Saint Mary's received a call reporting a stabbing in Mountain Village on Sunday. But, severe weather conditions with high winds and blizzard conditions prevented any travel to the village. On Monday, when the conditions eased enough to allow travel to the community, troopers were able to convene an investigation into the stabbing incident. The investigation revealed that three individuals belonging to the same household had all sustained knife wounds during an altercation.
Two of the three had sustained wounds of a serious enough nature, that it was determined that they needed to be transported to the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Center in Bethel.
Troopers have not released any names at this time as they have not yet determined the aggressor in the incident. According to the troopers release, they believe that all of the individuals had been highly intoxicated from drinking home-brew and were blacked out during the incident.
The Trooper investigation is continuing.
