Alleged Assault and Arrest

A cruise ship worker from South Africa was apprehended in Alaska’s capital city on Tuesday, facing charges of assaulting a woman and two security guards with scissors aboard the vessel, according to authorities. The individual is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon within maritime and territorial jurisdiction, as per the U.S. attorney’s office. Notably, no attorney has been listed for the 35-year-old accused in online court records.

Incident Details

According to an affidavit filed by FBI Special Agent Matthew Judy, the man had recently joined a cruise line and boarded the Norwegian Encore in Seattle just this past Sunday. The ship had embarked on a weeklong voyage with stops in Alaskan ports, including Juneau and British Columbia.

The incident took place west of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, as the ship sailed towards Alaska. Ship personnel observed the accused attempting to deploy a lifeboat late Sunday evening. Security escorted him to a medical center for evaluation, where he became agitated and tried to leave. He then physically attacked a guard and a nurse before grabbing scissors and stabbing a woman under examination and two intervening guards. He was subsequently subdued and detained on the ship.

The Norwegian Encore arrived in Juneau on Tuesday, leading to the man’s arrest by FBI officials. The U.S. attorney’s office has initiated legal proceedings in this matter, marking a significant development in the ongoing investigation of the Cruise Ship Worker Murder case in Alaska.
