Troopers say that they received two calls to investigate two incidents at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center in Juneau that occurred a half an hour apart on Tuesday afternoon.
The investigation revealed that at approximately a quarter after four on Tuesday afternoon, two inmates, a 41-year-old male, and a 28-year-old male got “into a physical altercation in the jail.”
As a result of that incident, the 41-year-old had to be transported to the Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. AST says that incident is under continuing investigation.
Approximately a half an hour later, at 4:51 pm, a 41-year-old inmate was said to have “touched a female prison staff member on the groin,” AST stated on the trooper dispatch.
AST reports that “A charge of Sexual Assault 2 is being forwarded to the Juneau District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.”
