A Kenai man arrested by Alaska State Troopers in July on three counts of sexual abuse of a minor has been indicted on two additional sexual abuse charges committed against two additional victims.

On Friday the Kenai Grand Jury charged Keith Roscoe Bartman, 30, on three counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the second-degree, a class B felony and two counts of attempted sexual abuse of a minor in the second-degree, a class C felony.

The Alaska Bureau of Investigations and Anchorage Police Department arrested Bartman in Anchorage on July 1 after a two-week investigation for the alleged sexual abuse against a 14-year old victim occurred at a residence in Kenai between February and May.

According to court records, further investigation revealed Bartman attempted to engage in sexual contact with two minors ages 6 and 9 in the same house on June 18 and June 19.

Each class B felony charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and $100,000 fine while each class C felony has a maximum of five years in jail and $50,000 fine.

According to the trooper’s sex offender database, Bartman’s last known address as of May 30 was camping near a mini mall on Kalifornsky Beach Road in Kenai.

Bartman is currently jailed at Cook Inlet Pretrial in Anchorage.

Bartman will be arraigned in Kenai Superior Court Tuesday in front of Judge Carl Bauman.
