K-9 nabs suspect in east Anchorage manhunt
The man police called "called armed and dangerous” during a manhunt in an east Anchorage trailer park Thursday has been arrested, officials say.
Rasean Daniels, 25, who allegedly abducted a woman from a Fairview hotel was caught by a police K-9, Doc, and arrested in a trailer court located on the 3200 block of Penland Parkway according to APD spokesperson MJ Thim.
Daniels was bitten by the dog, but Thim said he did not know if the suspect was injured from it.
Police had converged on the trailer court shortly after 9:30 a.m.
“This call came in a little after 9:15 (a.m.) at the Black Angus Inn for a report of a reported abduction,” Thim said. “[Daniels] kidnapped an adult female. He fled the scene in an SUV; we’ve located the SUV over in the Penland Parkway area and he got out.”
The victim is “safe,” Thim said, but he didn’t immediately have word on her injuries.
Thim had said Daniels was isolated in one area of the trailer park. Alaska State Troopers and K9s were called to assist in the search.
Officers at the scene, wearing tactical gear and carrying rifles, were searching vehicles leaving the area.
Daniels’ Anchorage criminal records since 2012 include a number of felony charges reduced to misdemeanors in plea deals, including counts of criminal mischief, theft, vehicle theft, burglary and assault. He pleaded guilty to felony misconduct involving controlled substances in 2016.
Open felony cases against Daniels include charges of vehicle theft and failure to stop at the direction of an officer, in incidents on March 1 and March 3 respectively.
Daniels had several unrelated warrants out for his arrest. He faces multiple charges including kidnapping, according to Thim.
