AST: Wasilla man sexually abused at least 4 children
A Wasilla man arrested Wednesday is charged with nearly a dozen counts of sexually abusing four different children, after an investigation which began earlier this week but may involve additional victims.
The case which led Alaska State Troopers to take 27-year-old Seth Loggins into custody began Sunday, according to an online dispatch, when troopers “began an investigation into the alleged abuse of an 11-year-old child in Wasilla.”
“As a result of interviews and investigation, three other children between the ages of 8 and 11 were determined to have been abused by the same suspect on several different occasions,” troopers wrote. “The suspect was positively identified as [Loggins].”
Loggins was held without bail Wednesday at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility on 11 counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, according to AST.
Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters didn’t immediately have word Wednesday afternoon on whether Loggins had routinely had access to children, or when the alleged abuse occurred.
“We have a concern that there may be more victims within the past five years,” Peters said.
Anyone with information regarding other victims of Loggins should contact troopers’ Palmer post at 907-745-2131.
