Also, go figure -- the attacker has an extensive criminal record:
Bostic has a lengthy criminal past, according to Assistant District Attorney Arne Soldwedel. His record includes convictions in California and Florida for a variety of crimes that include drug possession, assault, robbery, drunken driving and shooting at an occupied house. Soldwedel said Bostic has a previous assault conviction that includes the use of a knife.I have to kind of wonder why convicts with multiple violent crimes are wandering around.
He appears to have a more limited criminal record in Alaska. A defendant named Michael Bostick with the same birthdate was arrested on misdemeanor criminal mischief and drug charges in 2009, according to online court records.
