Charges of assault with a weapon are pending for a Whitehorse resident following a December 23 stabbing in Riverdale.

Officers arrested a 25-year-old man at approximately 2:40 a.m., according to an RCMP media release.

“On attending the scene at a residence in Riverdale subdivision, police officers found one individual being treated by Emergency Medical Services for non-life threatening injuries.

“On further investigation, police determined a 30-year-old man had been stabbed once during an argument while attending a party at the residence.”

Police believe alcohol was a factor.

The 25-year-old, who was not named by police, is scheduled to appear in court on February 6.

Tour guide pepper sprayed

 

After being pepper sprayed by American park rangers, a Whitehorse man was sentenced to five years probation by an Alaskan court last month.

Paul Maria Maximillian Kloepfer was guiding for Yukon’s Ruby Range Adventures in the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park without a permit when a series of unfortunate incidents took place, according to a media release from the office of Nelson P. Cohen, United States Attorney for the District of Alaska.

Last June, when rangers stopped Kloepfer for questioning, things turned sour.

“When investigating rangers met Kloepfer, Kloepfer grew increasingly belligerent and failed to follow instructions of park rangers to remained seated so park rangers could issue citations to Kloepfer and his company,” according to Cohen’s release.

“During the incident park rangers were forced to use pepper spray when Kloepfer refused to stay seated and belligerently confronted the rangers.”

After Kloepfer was arrested and taken into custody, he was observed attempting to escape from his handcuffs, according to the release.

Kloepfer also served a 23-day sentence imposed by the State of Alaska and was fined $2,500.
