A 23-year-old Soldotna woman broke free from an armed man who cut the power to her home early Friday morning before entering for what police believe was attempted rape.
Police allege that Shane A. Heiman, 38, entered a home on Tobacco Lane sometime before 3 a.m. and entered the room of his intended victim with a knife intending to rape her. Heiman was arrested after leaving the scene and charged with first-degree sexual assault, third-degree assault, first-degree burglary and resisting arrest.
If convicted on all charges, Heiman faces more that 30 years in prison.
