Troopers responded after the call-in at 5:49 pm on Tuesday to open an investigation into the incident and found that Simeon Jacoy of Anchorage, who was reported to have suicidal plans and also had violent tendencies, attacked his girlfriend’s brother with two knives. He was dissuaded with pepper spray and fled into the woods after attacking the 30-year-old victim.
A helicopter was dispatched to Willow and the victim, who suffered serious injuries, was transported to higher care in Anchorage after being tended by EMS at the scene.
Jacoy would be located several miles away by troopers and taken into custody. He was transported to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility where he was remanded on charges of Felony Assault I.
He is being held with no bail set.
