Man Arrested for Duct-Taping 18 Year Old to Tree, Attempted Rape
According to police, 39-year-old Jeremy Bienek duct-taped a young woman to a tree, duct-taped her mouth and hands, and tried to rape her in Kincaid Park last week.
A 39-year-old Anchorage man has been arrested for duct-taping an 18-year-old woman to a tree in Kincaid Park and then trying to rape her.
Police say that on Aug. 15, at about 5 p.m., Jeremy Bienek told the woman he would teach her to drive, but instead drove her to a remote trail in Kincaid Park where he duct-taped her to a tree, duct-taped her mouth and hands, and tried to rape her. Anchorage Police Department Special Victims Unit detectives arrested Bienek yesterday.
Court documents indicate that Bienek has a lengthy rap sheet that includes assault, theft and drunken driving charges. He remains behind bars on a no-bail condition.
According to SVU detectives, Bienek is a family friend of the 18 year old. SVU detectives also report that in two-thirds of the department’s sexual assault cases, the victim knows their attacker.
