Man in stabbing incident arraigned in Valdez Court
A stabbing outside a Valdez bar has led to a man being indicted by a grand jury. Robert Goldstein was indicted on four counts of assault in the stabbing of Corrie Taylor. He was arraigned in Valdez Court, this (morning). Judge Dan Schally set Goldstein’s bail at 20-thousand dollars.
According to court documents, Goldstein and Taylor had gotten into a scuffle inside the Goldrush Saloon two weeks ago. After the scuffle was broken up, both men were told to leave in opposite directions. Goldstein told Fowler, who was working as a bouncer at the time, the he was going back to his boat to sleep.
Later, Fowler heard a noise around the building. He went around the building and found Goldstein stabbing Taylor with a pocket knife. Fowler was able to get Goldstein off of Taylor and pry the knife off out of his hand. Goldstein was restrained until Valdez Police arrived. Officers had to tase Goldstein before taking him into custody.
Taylor sustained multiple stab wounds including two to his lung. He was transported to Providence Valdez Medical Center for treatment. His condition is unknown at this time.
