Man Jailed For Ramming Vehicle After Trespassing

A 78-year-old Soldotna man was jailed on Monday after allegedly ramming a Toyota 4Runner driven by juveniles, which had been trespassing on his property. Megan Peters with the Alaska State Troopers explained…


Peters: “There was an incident going on across the highway from where the Duck Inn is off of K-Beach Rd, about Mile 18.5. It looked like one vehicle rammed into another vehicle and then an assault took place on the side of the road. Troopers were called and we responded as a result of that contact. A man by the name of Edwin Saltz, age 78, he was taken into custody and charged with various assault charges against him.”


Saltz reportedly caused $500 in damage to the 4Runner and afterwards confronted the juveniles, pulling the hair of the driver. He was charged with three counts of Assault in the third degree, Criminal Mischief in the third degree, and Assault in the fourth degree and remanded to Wildwood.
