ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 36-year-old Anchorage man is accused of having sex with a 13-year-old girl he met online and breaking into the home of an 18-year-old woman he had chatted with on the Internet.
Lloyd Pennebaker was arrested early Wednesday morning after a woman found him in a corner of her living room, Detective Eric Hamre said. Pennebaker was dressed in dark clothing and wore a mask, according to a criminal complaint.
The woman yelled and ran upstairs to her husband, who confronted Pennebaker with a shotgun and held him until police arrived. Pennebaker initially told police he had been at the home to buy a tent from an online contact.
When arrested, Pennebaker had a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun in his coat pocket, Hamre said. Officers also found pantyhose, a bottle of lotion and photos of the couple's 18-year-old daughter in his coat.
The daughter told police she had chatted with Pennebaker on Yahoo, a popular Web site. The daughter said she had never met Pennebaker. She told police she gave him her address, but hadn't invited him over and didn't expect him to show up. She was asleep until she heard her mother's yell, Hamre said.
''Unfortunately, this family had left its front door unlocked and he walked in,'' he told the Anchorage Daily News.
Officers searched Pennebaker's pickup and found papers indicating he had relations with other women he met online. One of the papers led detectives to a 13-year-old girl, who said she had sex with Pennebaker in his pickup.
Pennebaker acknowledged to police he had sex with the girl, according to the complaint. He has no criminal record in Alaska.
Pennebaker used a screen name of ''lloyd35ak,'' Hamre said. His Yahoo profile page includes his photo and states he is 35, ''single, not looking,'' and in the real estate business.
Pennebaker also used other screen names to hide his identity, Hamre said, including ''andyinachorage,'' ''anchbichick'' and ''teenguy4fun.'' Those three profile pages are blank.
Pennebaker is charged with three counts of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count each of first-degree burglary and a weapons violation. He was being held at Cook Inlet Pre-Trial Facility on $25,000 bail.
