Man in critical condition after being beaten with cane; Anchorage police arrest suspect

Police have arrested a 27-year-old man who they say beat three men with a cane in a park in the Anchorage neighborhood of Mountain View early Sunday, sending one to the hospital in critical condition.

Police arrived at a park near the corner of North Lane Street and Mountain View Drive just after midnight on Sunday to find an unconscious man on the ground with life-threatening injuries to his face and head, according to a statement from Anchorage Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Castro.

The man, who has not been identified, was taken to a local hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

Two other men at the scene suffered face lacerations and were treated by medics, police said.

An investigation revealed that Jordan Teayoumeak had "assaulted the three victims with a cane," according to the statement issued by police.

It wasn't clear if the cane belonged to Teayoumeak or someone else.

He was arrested at the scene and charged with three counts of felony assault.

Alcohol was a factor in the assaults, police said.
