At approximately 8 p.m. Sept. 16, someone slipped an anonymous note under the University Police Department door. The note described the whereabouts of an Anchorage teen who had been badly beaten and left for death. The UPD alerted the Anchorage Police Department, which investigated and found James Clinton, 18, unconscious in an abandoned house.
The house was owned by Covenant House, a local charity, and was set to be demolished the next day to make space for a parking lot. Clinton was taken to a local hospital, unconscious and in critical condition.
No arrests have been made at this time.
Anchorage police are currently investigating who assaulted Clinton and why.
If you have any additional information, call the police at 907-786-8900 or Crime Stoppers at 907-561-STOP. There is a cash reward up to $1,000 for any information.
