ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 26-year-old Palmer man was charged with four counts of sexual assault and one count of kidnapping Friday.
Alaska State Troopers said Micah J. Beshaw was taken into custody at a family homestead near Glennallen. He remains in Mat-Su Pretrial Facility with bail set at $100,000.
Beshaw is charged with kidnapping and assaulting a 54-year-old woman Sept. 22.
The victim told troopers she was walking north on the Glenn Highway at about Mile 49 when she was grabbed by a man wearing a mask, sexually assaulted, placed in a vehicle, taken to an unknown location and sexually assaulted again.
