The woman said Allen pushed her onto a wood stove during the argument and punched her in the face the week before, according to charging documents.

• Leonard James Chickalusion, 34, of Fairbanks, was charged with felony third-degree assault April 2. According to charging documents, a caller reported a woman was screaming for help at Badger Gas before getting into a truck and driving down Holmes Road. Alaska State Troopers responded and found Chickalusion holding the woman's arms and shaking her as they stood in the roadway. Chickalusion appeared to be yelling at the woman and raised his hand in the air before he noticed the troopers' presence. Chikalusion told troopers he hadn't done anything, and repeatedly told them to "ask her what happened." The woman told troopers that Chickalusion was not responsible for the cuts on her face and bruises on her arms.
