The Anchorage Police Department divulged more details and also revealed the charges against the Carrs attack that took place at 7731 East Northern Lights that occurred early in the morning on Wednesday.
According to the release posted on Nixle, the suspect, 27-year-old Armando Antonio Walker, has been charged with Attempted Murder in reference to his initial victim, as well as Assault charges for his armed attack on one of the arresting officers. Walker was also the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant for a previous attack on the same woman.
Police say that the responding officers encountered Walker in the store’s parking lot as he was walking away from the store’s main doors. APD said, “Police confronted Walker who refused to comply with their instructions. A physical struggle ensued between Walker and officers when Walker tried to run away.”
Walker was ultimately tazed twice before he was subdued. After Walker was handcuffed, it was discovered that one of the officers had suffered a stab wound to his torso as well as another stab wound to his hand. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries.[xyz-ihs snippet=”Adsense-responsive”]As officers were outside with the suspect, another officer was inside the store with the female victim.
