ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Alaska State Troopers arrested a man residing in the Snowshoe Motel in Tok who was reported to have beaten another man and put a knife to his throat Tuesday morning.

Hours after the assault, at around 7 p.m., Trevor Joe, the alleged assaulter, was located in his motel room by troopers, according to a Monday morning AST dispatch. Troopers said he refused to cooperate with authorities and barricaded himself in his motel room.

Within the following hour, troopers were able to acquire a search warrant and forced their way into the room. Joe was then arrested and sent to a detention center without bail on the charges of third-degree assault.
