Dustin Badillo indicted for recent kidnapping, sexual assault
The man accused of sexually assaulting a woman and kidnapping her and her two children was indicted Wednesday on 18 charges.
Badillo was indicted on nine counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of first-degree burglary, three counts of kidnapping, one count of first-degree vehicle theft, one count of third-degree misconduct involving a weapon and one count each of first and second-degree sexual assault.
The charges stem from a crime spree that began around 8 a.m. April 22, when a man armed with a gun — later identified as 20-year-old Badillo — approached a woman and her two children in their garage as they were leaving. After sexually assaulting the woman, Badillo forced all three victims into their vehicle and went to multiple retail stores and an ATM to withdraw money from the woman’s bank account.
He left the family near the 300 block of Boniface Parkway around 11 a.m., driving away in their Kia Sedona. The Anchorage Police Department took the family into protective custody after the woman dialed 911 to report the incident, according to APD spokeswoman Jennifer Castro.
APD located the family’s vehicle later that day at an unspecified location.
Police arrested Badillo the next day at 4:37 p.m. after a short foot chase near North Star Elementary School. Police were able to locate him after receiving a report of a suspicious man behind the school.
Another call to police earlier that day placed Badillo at a home near the intersection of 15th Avenue and F Street, where the residences claimed they came home to find him inside and armed.
If convicted, Badillo faces up to 99 years in prison for the kidnapping and sexual assault charges, a release from the Attorney General’s office states. The severity of the sentence will depend on the judge’s view on the seriousness of the crimes, and Badillo’s criminal history. Badillo has prior convictions for second-degree escape and first-degree burglary.
