APD Reports Early Morning Kidnapping, Sexual Assault
Man wanted for 2 a.m. Friday abduction
At about 2 a.m. Friday morning, Anchorage police report a 17-year-old female was driving her boyfriend to a local bar to pick up a friend. While the boyfriend was inside and the female was waiting in the car, an unknown male pulled open the passenger door, got inside, and, armed with a handgun, proceeded to have the victim drive to various locations over the next 3 to 4 hours. During this time, the suspect attempted to sexually assault the victim. He eventually had her drive to the area of Fireweed Lane and Northstar Street, where he fled on foot.
Using a description provided by the victim, police compiled a composite drawing of the suspect. He's described as a medium to dark complexion black male, about 40 years old, 5' 9" tall and stocky. He had short, cropped hair, a chin goatee, and was wearing jeans and a black coat and blue poncho-like shirt.
The police ask anyone with information that may lead to the identity of the suspect to call Detective Jade Baker at 786-8530. If you see someone matching the description, call APD immediately at 786-8900. Police advise not to attempt to contact the suspect, as he's considered armed and dangerous.
