Kenai brothers arrested over weekend

Two Kenai residents were arrested on charges relating to a weekend assault.

Steven Curry, 37, and his brother Alexander Jensen, 27, were arrested by Kenai Police Department officers on Sunday after they responded to a report of a domestic disturbance on Kalifornsky Beach Road.

Curry left the scene on foot after allegedly hitting a woman in the head with an unopened beer can, causing her to bleed, according to a probable cause statement written by Officer Jayms Harris.

“Our suspect left the scene of the crime and went to Jensen’s residence,” said Sgt. Ben Langham. “The officers knew that Curry was inside, and Jensen wasn’t truthful with them.”

Langham said Kenai Police Department was not assisted by another agency, and said he could not release any further information due to the crime being a case of domestic violence.

Curry was arraigned one charge of assault in the fourth degree on Monday at the Kenai Courthouse. Complaint documents show Curry was also charged with driving with a suspended license on June 28, for which he was arraigned on Monday.

In Curry’s case, the court ordered a $500 appearance bond and a $3,000 performance bond. He is not to contact the alleged victim or discuss the case with his brother.

If convicted of both charges, Curry faces up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000.

Jensen was arraigned on one charge of hindering prosecution in the second degree on Monday. The court set Jensen a $2,500 unsecured appearance bond. He is prohibited from discussing the case with Curry.

If convicted, Jensen could face up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.

Both men have pre-trial conferences set for August 20 at the Kenai Courthouse.

Attempts to reach Curry and Jensen for comment were not successful.
