Kenai Peninsula man arrested on 9 counts of sexual assault

    Homer, Alaska (KINY) - Alaska State Troopers revealed that an Anchor Point man was arrested on charges of Sexual Assault of a Minor and Sexual Assault.

    According to Alaska Native News, AST said that 53-year-old Ronald Komakhuk became the target of an investigation on February 4 when a report was made that Komakhuk was sexually abusing a family member.

    The teen was interviewed and divulged that Komakhuk had sexually abused them several times on January 25 and on other occasions while in Wasilla. It was also found that Komakhuk had also sexually abused another family member on that January date.

    On Wednesday, the Palmer Court issued a warrant for Komakhuk’s arrest for two counts of Sexual Abuse of a Minor I, four counts of Sexual Abuse of a Minor II, one count of attempted Sexual Assault I, one count of Sexual Assault II, and one count of Sexual Assault III.

    Anchor Point-based troopers went to a residence there and placed Komakhuk under arrest and transported him to the Homer Jail.

    AST believes that Komakhuk has additional victims around the state dating back to the 1990s. Anyone with information regarding a crime committed by Komakhuk is encouraged to contact Troopers in Palmer at 907-745-2131.
