A 17-year-old male from Sutton is in custody after admitting to sexually assaulting a minor, according to Alaska State Trooper dispatch.

Troopers say around 7:52 p.m. on October 18, a 911 call came in from Jacob O'dell saying he had done something bad. Troopers found O'dell sexually assaulted an 8-year-old. He was then arrested and taken to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility.

Because of the nature of the criminal offense, O'dell is being tried as an adult. He is being held without bail pending arraignment.
