Anchorage attorney Joe Palmier didn’t think twice when he saw three young men walking past his home on Edinburgh Drive on Friday.
What happened next left the 76-year-old Anchorage trial lawyer with five staples in his head, a mangled face and a bristle of stitches in his lips.
One of the young men said something but Palmier’s leaf blower drowned out the words. The trio kept going. Palmier returned to his quick afternoon chore, still wearing his leather jacket and work clothes.
The next thing Palmier knew, the three young men stood in the driveway, which was strange. People don’t just walk up the Palmier driveway leading to the Tudor-style home 25 or 30 feet above the road.
They asked him to contribute to a West High School fundraiser.
Palmier said no. He and his wife give to United Way every year.
“They turned to go back down the driveway and I turned in the opposite direction,” Palmier said by phone Monday afternoon, home from the hospital and recovering from his injuries. “That’s the last thing I remember. I woke up in a pool of blood.”
