A Tyonek man has been arrested and charged after troopers say he stabbed another man in the village.

Troopers got a report of the stabbing on Thursday afternoon, and made it to Tyonek about four hours later at 9:20 p.m., according to an Alaska State Trooper dispatch. There, they arrested Jeromy Ray Kroto, 35, on one charge of first-degree assault.

The man troopers say he stabbed was flown to a hospital in Anchorage and “is expected to fully recover,” troopers wrote in the dispatch. Alcohol was a factor in the stabbing, according to the dispatch.

Kroto was brought to the Wildwood Pretrial Facility in Kenai on Friday and was arraigned on Saturday. His next hearing is set for Jan. 19.

Assault in the first degree is a class A felony, punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

Kroto has faced a mix of charges in the past including minor offenses, misdemeanors and a felony, dating back to 2000. He was convicted of assault in the fourth degree in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013.
