Men arrested following South Anchorage home invasion

By KTVA CBS 11 News 11:43 AM June 16, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

Update: Anchorage police charged and arrested 22-year-old Kevin Wondzell, the second suspect in the home invasion, Friday. He is charged with first-degree burglary, first-degree robbery and second-degree assault.

The Anchorage Police Department says one suspect is in custody and a second suspect has yet to be identified following a home invasion in South Anchorage Thursday morning.

Bradley Sekulich, 33, faces charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and second-degree vehicle theft following the incident on the 12000 block of Patrick Road. According to APD, the robbery was reported to police dispatch just before 4 a.m. Thursday. Two men allegedly entered the home, tied up the two residents and held them at gunpoint while taking money, an electronic device and one of the resident’s vehicles. One of the suspects also assaulted one of the victims, police said.

It was initially reported that one of the victims may have been acquainted with one of the suspects, according to a Friday statement from APD, and police were able to identify Sekulich as one of the suspects after an initial investigation.

After recovering the stolen vehicle Thursday night, police said Sekulich was found and arrested Friday morning.

The police department said anyone with information on the home invasion or the identity of the second suspect is asked to call police at 786-8900 or submit an anonymous tip via Crime Stoppers by clicking here.
