Police: no new leads on assailants

Posted: June 15, 2013 - 3:10pm

Police are still seeking the two men who assaulted a women in Soldotna on June 4.

The Soldotna Police Department has no active leads on the men, but it is still cooperating with area police departments and the public.

Without new information, the department will soon relegate the case to an inactive status, Sgt. Duane Kant said.

But “we’re still looking,” Kant said.

The 20-year-old Soldotna resident who fought off the two men at about 4 p.m. in Soldotna Creek Park described the attackers as follows:

— One man was a roughly 50-year-old white man with gray hair and stubbly facial hair. He was about 6 feet tall, about 220 pounds with a pot belly. At the time, he was wearing a white shirt, black pants and a Trustworthy Hardware & Fishing baseball cap. 

— The other man was native and in his 20s. He was small, had medium-length, dark hair with a blond streak on the right side of his head, and wore a soul patch under his lip. He was wearing a brown coat, a blue shirt, light-colored blue jeans and a simple, gold wedding band.

One man drew a brown-, plastic-handled folding knife about 4 inches long. It had silver ends and “Alaska” printed on the handle.

Kant asked residents to report either of the men to the Kenai or Soldotna Police Department by calling the buisness lines, 907-283-7879 and 907-262-4455, respectively. If it is an emergency, or the men are leaving the area, call 911, he said.

Residents should not endanger themselves, he said, but if they see the men, keep them in sight.

The Soldotna Police Department has received several calls from the public regarding the assailants, but none lead to the two men, he said.
