ANCHORAGE -

Anchorage police say a man was arrested after assaulting three people including his girlfriend overnight Thursday, seriously injuring two security guards at a Midtown hotel.

According to a Friday statement from APD spokesperson Anita Shell, 24-year-old Hunter Hedrick is being held at the Anchorage Jail without bail on assault charges.

Shell says police first learned of the sequence of events at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday, when Hedrick’s girlfriend called and said he had assaulted her at her San Roberto Avenue residence. Shell says her injuries included lacerations near her eyebrow.

“She was hit in the face,” Shell said. “She had a bloody eye.”

Police next heard about Hedrick just after midnight, when he tried to get a room at the Springhill Suites hotel at 4050 University Lake Dr. When he began shouting at a hotel clerk, two security guards -- 55-year-old Jeffrey Palm and 42-year-old William Grafton -- approached him.

“(Palm) approached Hedrick and asked him to calm down,” Shell wrote. “Hedrick responded by punching Palm in the face, knocking him to the ground. Hedrick then continued to punch Palm repeatedly until (Grafton) intervened. That second employee sustained a broken arm during the assault.”

Shell says it’s not clear whether Hedrick used drugs or alcohol during either incident, but he was taken into custody shortly after leaving Springhill Suites.

“He was on foot and he was very close to the hotel,” Shell said. “He did not get very far.”

Shell says Palm is still hospitalized with multiple facial fractures as of Friday afternoon.
