INFORMATION RELEASE

Subject: Celebration Incident Witness SearchDate: 07-15-2014 07:54:04
From: Lt. Kris SellCase or Incident: #140614-006
Summary:The Juneau Police Department is seeking additional witnesses to several incidents at the Celebration Parade on 6-14-14 for the purpose of showing those witnesses a photo lineup to help police identify the suspect. Multiple people have been interviewed during the month long investigation but many did not get a good look at the face of the suspect or became convinced that a Facebook picture that was being circulated was the suspect. Officers confirmed that the man in the Facebook picture was at work at the time of the incident.

If you did see the man who kicked at traffic barricades on Main Street at the parking garage, was later at the Goldbelt Hotel and chanted a racial slur that begins with the letter 'N', and ultimately grabbed an American flag from the hands of a native man please call JPD. Some men pursued the suspect and took the flag back but JPD has not identified those men and would like to speak with them.

If you believe you saw the face of the suspect please contact Lt. Kris Sell at 586-0600.
All factual allegations contained in this release are based upon preliminary investigation and are subject to change or clarification as the investigation continues.    Any charges reported in this release are merely accusations and all persons named in this release are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.*** END OF STATEMENT ***
