Schools in Alaska are not yet on summer break, but teen violence has been the ramping up this spring in Southcentral Alaska.

On Thursday, three masked teens invaded a Muldoon neighborhood Boys and Girls Club, and physically attacked another youth, who is a member of the recreation center that is in Northeast Anchorage. During the attack, a weapon — said to be a firearm of some sort — fell from one of the suspect’s clothing, but was not discharged during the attack. It was picked up by one of the attackers who fled the scene with the other two.

The club was closed and is set to reopen on Monday, and police have not made any arrests in the investigation, which is ongoing.

On Friday evening, Wasilla Police Department officers were dispatched to the Valley Cinema, on Old Matanuska Road, after a stabbing had occurred inside the theater.

Police and Alaska State Troopers arrived and found that several teenagers had been involved in a fight. During the fight, one teenager was stabbed.

The suspect remained on scene and cooperated with officers, while the victim was transported to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center. The victim later died of his injuries after being air-lifted to Providence Hospital, Wasilla Police reported.

This incident is being investigated as a homicide. Neither the suspect nor victim names are bring released, as they are both under the age of 18. Must Read Alaska has learned the victim was 15.

Last month, a gang of girls brutally beat a girl at Clark Middle School, causing multiple contusions in an incident that has focused attention on violence in Anchorage schools during school hours.

  1. Anchorage= Little Chicago of the North. A bitty small town trying to be bigger.
    Glad I have no need to ever,ever go there.

    • They obviously need a more progressive mayor to ‘fix’ things. I’m sure that too many police and too much discipline is the problem. Elections have consequences.

    • Where was the person stabbed to death???? Wasilla Police Department officers were dispatched to the Valley Cinema, on Old Matanuska Road, after a stabbing had occurred inside the theater

  2. Welcome to the lefts idea of rights and the law.
    Remember everybody is a winner.
    One would think that people would care but obviously, not because of the election results.
    Vote for change and look what it brought.
    These kids need to be put in big boy lock up and become some long term examples of a Society that’s not going to put up with crime.

  3. DEI. Critical Race Theory. LGBTQ. Biden. Obama. RCV. Man-made Climate Change. ETC…
    .
    With all of this utter crap floating around in our society today, and the adults focusing on this crap, the kids don’t have a chance. The Democrats have caused most of it.

    • Naomi. You poor thing. All your Republican wacko grievances have nothing to do with the story.

      • What a society tolerates (for “equity”) a society gets: licentiousness & debauchery. It ain’t us running this sh#tshow.

  4. The kids raised under GenX and millennials are spoiled, emotionally and spiritually neglected, and socially awkward.
    I’ll remind again these places where there are youth growing up without any kind of faith, where the adult coordinators of such places Boys and Girls Clubs have no faith or immature faith, they need Southcentral and Anchorage conservative men single or mature men commit volunteer hours to these youth. You know the AKGOP need more voters, it’ll be a lot easier recruiting new voters from young conservative men to aging boomers volunteering hosting games, parties, and outings for youth whose parents drop teens of whose parents or grandparents need a break, than for Anchorage Republicans going door to door trying to convince eligible voters to vote. Teenagers are still trainable, they are still young enough this Bible verse can apply to them”train up a child in the way to go and when they are old they shall depart from it” even if they do go a prodigal way, eventually they will return back to the good teaching if it was taught.

  5. Gang bangers.
    Glad we took God out of the schools, what a travesty that was …. right & wrong and the “state” telling students they answer to something bigger then them.

    • George. if your god exists, why does he allow children to be murdered.?

      “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
      Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.

      Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
      Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”

      • 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

      • Paola,

        Clearly you’ve never read the Bible.

        Jehovah gave man free will.

        Also, if these teenagers actually read and followed scripture, I find it highly unlikely they would be finding themselves in situations like this.

      • God gave humanity free will. Freedom is love. People choose to be evil out of their own free will. This world is fallen because people choose sin over God’s pressence and love. They would rather blame God for their choices instead of love God and choosing not to sin. God is not a tyrant that forces people what to do in this world. That is what evil does. Evil uses control. God is not evil. God uses freedom. God loves you. God wants you to love Him. He desperately wants a relationship with you Paola Ann Estrada. Love has to be a choice from a person’sown free will. You can’t force a pperson to love. You have to choose to love. I pray you choose to love God one day. I used to speak and think as you do. Make the same comments as the one you made above. But one day I met Jesus and saw His love for me. I made the choice to love Him back. It was the best choice of my life. Maybe one day you will make that loving choice too. Peace be with you today. 🙏

  6. Gee. Create a society with no consequences, with no fathers, see what you get.

    This is the “ just society” the left wants.

    • Only a child would make claims that s/he has no evidence for. Go upstairs and polish your gun.

      • POLICY CENTER FOR OPPORTUNITY NOW
        FACT SHEET: Fatherhood and Crime
        MAY 30, 2023
        The United States has the HIGHEST RATE of children in single-parent households of any nation in the world.
        There are over 18 million fatherless children in the US.
        Fathers are absent from approximately 80% of single-parent homes.
        Fatherless families are 4x more likely to live in poverty than that for married-couple families.
        Fatherless children are more likely to abuse drugs and show signs of delinquent behavior.
        FATHERLESS CHILDREN ARE MORE LIKELY TO SUFFER FROM PSYCHOSOCIAL DEVELOPMENT ISSUES, LIVE IN POVERTY, DROP OUT OF SCHOOL, ENGAGE IN SCHOOL VIOLENCE, ABUSE SUBSTANCES, AND ENTER THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM.
        Father absence as a predictor of violence is robust for both male and female violence.
        70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from single-parent homes
        Individuals from father-absent homes are 279% more likely to carry guns and deal drugs than their peers
        Most adolescents who enter the justice system have suffered from parental abandonment, substance abuse, or a dysfunctional household.
        In a study of 75 juvenile delinquents, 66% experienced fatherlessness, 20% had never lived with their father, and 25% had an alcoholic father.
        It has been reported that fatherless children are anywhere from 3 to 20 times more likely to be incarcerated than children raised in dual-parent households.
        71% of teachers and 90% of law enforcement officials state that the lack of parental supervision at home is a major factor that contributes to violence in schools.
        In a study of 56 school shootings, only 10 of the shooters (18%) were raised in a stable home with both biological parents. 82% grew up in either an unstable family environment or grew up without both biological parents together.
        Some data suggests 72 percent of adolescent murderers and 70 percent of long-term prison inmates come from fatherless homes
        Children who feel closeness to their father are 80% less likely to spend time in jail
        75% percent of adolescent patients in substance abuse centers are from fatherless homes.

  7. A “ no consequence’s “ environment may be partially responsible. Can’t discipline a kid at home without possible repercussions. Teachers can’t discipline. And there are a lot of teachers that are a product of their education environment and wouldn’t know how to discipline.
    What other outcome could you expect?
    I received a spanking in school at a young age. And also more so by my parents…….at a young age. I’m sure I deserved every one.
    When I got into my teens, do yo know what I didn’t get ? Spankings……. Weird.

  8. Paola be assured, God exists. He gives humans free choice. Unfortunately, they choose evil. We have walked away from the Biblical foundation that we were founded on. We reap what we sow. I pray your eyes are opened. God bless.

  9. Obviously, the solution here is common sense knife and fist control.

    “When knives and fists are outlawed, only outlaws will have knives and fists.”

    For the children!

  10. You can bet all those kids were “socialized”
    In public “school”/ daycare.

    Public “school” is where you get hooked up with gang like people and learn to fight.
    I know from experience. I was “good”

    Shut down public schools. Break the cycle of violence ,imprisonment , single parent families and the destruction of critical thought.
    Save citizens money and give parents school choice vouchers.

    Raise the odds of creating intelligent honorable ethical children.
    Educate them in private schools or homeschool.
