Anchorage police say they have found a man who walked away from the Cordova Center halfway house, after asking the public for assistance Wednesday.

According to court records, Robert J. Davis, 43,escaped Tuesday.

Davis has a number of previous felony convictions in Anchorage including assault, burglary and forgery. His most recent conviction was for a misdemeanor count of making a false report, to which court records show he pleaded guilty.

According to a charging document in that case, police responding to a reported theft Nov. 17 at the Lowe’s store on Old Seward Highway found a white van in the parking lot containing three people including Davis. When police questioned him, he “initially stated he did not have Alaska ID and provided an incorrect [Social Security number].”

“Davis said his name was ‘David Smith,’ then ‘Robert Oscar Davis,’ then ‘Jason Braggs’ and provided other [Social Security numbers] which did not match,” prosecutors wrote. “Officers were finally able to find, through DMV, an identification with his photo for [Davis].”
