Pair arrested after drunken disturbance on Juanita Loop
On June 17 at around 10:53 p.m., officers with the Anchorage Police Department arrived at a residence on Juanita Loop after receiving a call reporting a boy had been hurt by his mother. According to police, Jolie C. Rozell, 44, of Eagle River was intoxicated when she grabbed her son’s head and “hit it against the carpeted floor several times.” Police said the child did not require medical attention. Rozell was arrested and charged with assault, child abuse, child neglect and family violence.
While officers were at the scene, they allegedly saw a man driving away from the area. Having spoken with the man earlier, officers believed he was intoxicated and tried unsuccessfully to catch up to the vehicle. A short time later, police said, the man, Kevin A. Lafromboise, 55, returned to the home without the car he left in. Police arrested him for driving while license revoked and felony operating under the influence because it was his third DUI charge in the past 10 years. Police said they found the car on the road behind the house.
