Man wanted for assault after allegedly hitting woman with shovel, vehicle
Anchorage police are seeking a man who reportedly hit his ex-girlfiriend with a shovel and struck her with a vehicle.
According to police, on July 15 at around 12:57 a.m., officers arrived at a residence on Eklutna Village Road for a reported disturbance and found a woman with ripped clothing and visible injuries. Police said the woman told them her ex-boyfriend, Christopher E. Clark-Stackhouse, 28, showed up at her house asking for money. The woman told police she picked up a shovel and told Clark-Stackhouse to leave, but instead of leaving he grabbed the shovel and beat her with it hard enough to break the handle. Stackhouse then reportedly got into a vehicle and drove toward the woman, striking her at least once.
Police said Clark-Stackhouse fled the scene with the woman’s backpack. Police weren’t able to find him, so they obtained a warrant for his arrest on charges of third- and fourth-degree assault and second-degree theft. Clark-Stackhouse is described as being 5-foot-10 and weighing 250 pounds with black hair and hazel eyes.
