6/16/2014 - Racial Incident at Celebration

On June 14, 2014, at about 9:30 a.m., a racial incident marred the close of Celebration 2014. The incident happened at the end of Saturdays parade. Native veterans acted as flag bearers and led the parade through downtown Juneau. Then the veterans formed a corridor on Willoughby Avenue next to Centennial Hall for the dancers to pass through as they finished the parade.

A white male grabbed the American flag out of the hands of a 67 year old native man. The white male yelled racial slurs at the native man and the crowd and attempted to spit on the flag. He then tried to run off with the flag. People in the area wrestled the flag away from the suspect who then ran away toward Whittier Street. The suspect also shoved people as he ran away, including a 53 year old native woman. Two Juneau Police Department officers on bikes and one in a patrol car searched the area but could not find the suspect. Now JPD needs the publics assistance in identifying the man responsible for the incident.

The suspect is described as between 30 and 50 years old. He was wearing a lighter toned multi-colored knit hat under the hood of a dark, possibly blue, jacket.

Many people were taking pictures and video of the dancers going through the flag corridor. Crime Line is offering a reward for a picture, video, or other information that leads to the identification of the suspect. Even if there is no video of the incident itself it is possible that someone documented the presence of the man in the crowd prior to the incident.

6/13/2014 - Theft at Shell Simmons Dr. Hotel

On May 30, 2014, at about 7:30 in the evening, four members of a documentary film team from the United Kingdom working in Alaska reported that about two thousand dollars worth of electronics, clothing, and other personal items were stolen from a hotel at 1800 Shell Simmons in Juneau. A member of the team reported they had all traveled to Prince of Wales Island as part of their documentary work and had arranged with the hotel to have their property that they were leaving in Juneau locked in a conference room. On their return the men found the conference room unlocked and someone had gone through all of their bags.

The team reported they were missing two ipods, an Apple DVD driver, computer cables, a Kindle charger, clothing, and an alarm clock.

At the time of the report a hotel employee said a manager would contact the men, who were returning to England the next day, about the situation.
