Mt. Village Man Arrested For Stabbing

A man in Mountain Village has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his brother. On Wednesday evening, Alaska State Troopers arrested 37-year-old Luther Aguchak who they say stabbed his 38-year-old brother with a knife.

The victim was stabbed one time in the stomach. He was flown to Bethel for treatment of the wound which was not life threatening.

Troopers say that the brothers lived together and the stabbing was unprovoked. They say alcohol was not a factor.
