A 57-year-old Lower Kalskag man has been arrested for two felony charges of first and third-degree assault.
According to a trooper affidavit, Andrew Littlefish, Sr. repeatedly stabbed his 22-year-old son on Nov. 20.
In the affidavit, Littlefish had reportedly been intoxicated and accused his son, Willie Littlefish, of stealing his alcohol, when Littlefish couldn’t find it. He then proceeded to stab his son multiple times, resulting in wounds all over his body, including his back and left eye.
The other children in the home reportedly left when the parents began drinking, but the son stayed at the residence, according to affidavit.
A neighbor and former health aide was able to assist the his wounds. Littlefish said they didn’t seek medical attention for Willie because they were treating his wounds at home.
But two weeks later, on Tuesday, Dec. 1, Willie was taken to the Bethel Emergency Room. At this point, he couldn’t walk on his own.
He’s been taken to the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage for further treatment. As of Friday, Nov. 5, the center wouldn’t comment on his condition.
After a trooper investigation Littlefish was arrested Wednesday.
His arraignment took place Thursday morning in Aniak and he was taken to the Yukon Kuskokwim Correctional Center in Bethel later that day, according to Aniak State Trooper David Bower.
The affidavit says Littlefish couldn’t remember which kitchen knife he stabbed his son with, but said it was between a knife with a 5-inch blade and a 10-inch blade.
Due to felony charges the Bethel Superior Court will handle the case. Littlefish is being held on a $100,000 bail.
