• Allen Robert Broeke, 30, of North Pole, was charged with third-degree felony assault for allegedly covering his ex-girlfriend’s face so she couldn’t breathe. The incident reportedly occurred about 1:45 a.m.
Sept. 3 outside on Badger Road near Lakloey Drive.
A group of three witnesses told Alaska State Troopers they intervened in a fight between Broeke and his ex-girlfriend after one of them heard her screaming. When they told Broeke to go away and leave her alone, he told them not to get involved and threatened them with violence, they said.
The woman told troopers that Broeke slammed his forehead on the asphalt of Badger Road and covered her face with his hands so she could not breathe after she told him she did not want to have a further relationship with him. They used to live together but recently broke up, she said.
A warrant was issued for Broeke’s arrest.
