Further investigation showed the woman’s driver’s license was revoked and she was in possession of methamphetamine. She was arrested and remanded into the Homer Jail.

Alaska State Troopers charged a 21-year-old Anchor Point woman with multiple counts of assault after new information came to light regarding an investigation which started on Sept. 1, 2020. On that date, the woman’s boyfriend was treated for stab wounds at South Peninsula Hospital and initially claimed an unknown person had cut him. While conducting a separate investigation regarding the woman, Troopers received information that she had stabbed/cut the boyfriend. The boyfriend subsequently confirmed that the woman had been the one who stabbed/cut him. She was already in custody at the Wildwood Pretrial facility and she was remanded on the new charges.
