Anchorage Crime Wave: Three Young Black Males Sought In Strongarm Robbery Of 76-Year-Old Man In The Jewel Lake Neighborhood Of Anchorage

Anchorage is suddenly experiencing an upsurge in violent crime. There have been bar fights in downtown Anchorage, and the body of a shooting victim was just discovered in Fairview this past Sunday. A suspect, 73-year-old Johnie Jones, has been arrested in the latter case on charges of second-degree murder, manslaughter and tampering with physical evidence. But the surge is spreading outside of the traditionally higher crime districts. On Friday October 18th, 2013, a 76-year-old man was assaulted and robbed in the Jewel Lake area of Anchorage. This area does not normally experience serious crime. The whole story is stitched together from reports in the Anchorage Daily News, KTUU Channel 2, and KTVA Channel 11.

Summary: The victim, who has not yet been identified, was working in his yard at his home near Edinburgh Drive and Dimond Blvd around 5:30 P.M. when he was approached by three young light-skinned black males who were asking for "donations for their team". It was reportedly a West High School fundraiser. One of the three was taller than the others, at least 6 feet, and their ages are estimated at anywhere from 17 or 18 to 25 or 26. The victim declined their request, explaining that he only gave donations to specific charities. The males turned to walk back down the driveway, and the victim turned his back on them. The next thing the victim remembers is that he was lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood, and was missing his wallet, an eight-diamond pinkie ring with “value in the thousands of dollars", and the keys to his vehicle. The vehicle itself wasn’t stolen. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries to his face and head; he was diagnosed with a concussion, and has five staples in his head and stitches on his lips.

Because the perpetrators are identified as black, one commenter to ADN, Ragnar Johnson, wrote "this type of black on white crime is all to common and needs to stop". The increasing prevalence of black-on-white crime nationwide is sensitizing many white folks. However, the race of the victim has not been publicly identified yet, and the victim did not report any racial slurs. So at the moment, it appears to be a crime of opportunity; police are soliciting the public's help in tracking down the suspects. But another incident took place in the Jewel Lake neighborhood this weekend that may or may not be related. On Sunday at a house party at the 3700 block of West 80th Avenue that got out of hand, police were called to the residence around 2:30 a.m. after reports of multiple gunshots in the area. Upon arrival, officers discovered two men, both in their early 30s, had each been struck once in the leg; both were taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Several partygoers reportedly left the scene before police arrived. This residence is located about a half mile north of the location of Friday's crime.

APD is reporting sporadic progress in resolving the recent violent crime surge in Anchorage, although many details must be withheld from the public to avoid undermining any investigations. Police ask anyone who is approached in a similar manner or hears people discussing the Edinburgh Drive robbery to call APD at 786-8900 or Crime Stoppers at 561-STOP.

  1. Whites are attacked 4,000 times a day by non-whites in the US. Besides financing this multi-cultural society, filling the role of crime victim is the only other thing we get out it! It is instigated by the Jewish organized crime syndicate for the purpose of socially engineering us out of existence - as a part of the religion of Babylon.
