Coming forward: Girl reveals sexual assault to mother months after the attack
A man was arrested after a seven-year-old girl told her mother he sexually assaulted her while she was at his Eagle River home.
The girl’s mother called police on Saturday, while the alleged assault occurred “during one weekend in September 2015,” according to Anchorage police, who said the girl only recently told her mother about it.
Police arrested 36-year-old Lance Hagedon and charged him with two counts each of first- and second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. His bail was set at $50,000, with a requirement for a third-party custodian.
Police stated they “do not have reason to believe there are any other victims,” but are asking anyone who has been victimized by Hagedon to contact them at 786-8900.
