Anchorage man stabbed after trying to confront suicidal family member, police say

A man in South Anchorage was taken to the hospital early Saturday morning after being stabbed by a family member who had been threatening to kill himself, police said in an alert.

Anchorage police said officers responded just after 6 a.m. to a home on the 500 block of West 90th Avenue, where Dallas Hanna, 35, had reportedly been making suicidal threats with a knife.

When Hanna’s family member tried to intervene, Hanna stabbed him, police said. The relative walked to a neighbor’s house to get help.

Both men were taken to a hospital. The man who was stabbed suffered injuries police described as “life threatening.”

Hanna, who was taken to the Anchorage Jail, faces charges of first and fourth degree assault and resisting arrest, according to police said.

Investigators believe the incident is “isolated” and are not looking for any other suspects.
