warring Somali tribes. Both men were barred from visiting any Unisea
Assault – Intoxicated caller
reported being slapped on the genitals and asked that officers issue a
trespass advisement to the woman who committed said act. An officer
advised the man, who repeatedly requests such trespass advisements only
to have them lifted days later, to call when he is sober.
Person/Activity – An amorous bloke who in a misguided attempt to
attract a mate placed his genitals on full, flapping display in the

victim couldn’t be offended by what she couldn’t see.

began beating him at cards. Alcohol was a factor.
Mukiza Aaron Balinda, 29 yoa, of Unalaska, was arrested for Driving

off a tractor tire that had been placed to protect other cars from
drivers such as him before finally coming to a stop.
– Officers received a second-hand report from a business manager that
one of his employees had been choked at the Harbor View Bar the night
before, by another employee, and had continued to receive threatening
text messages. The participants and a witness provided information

pursue charges and the suspect, who claimed he did not remember what
happened, wished only to apologize.

Caller reported his wife was beating him and asked if he could hit her
back. Officers contacted the intoxicated caller and determined that he
had kicked his girlfriend in the head upon learning that she was trying
to make plans to leave the island. Byron E. Olander, 38 yoa, of
