Kokhanok Man Indicted on Charges of Sexual Abuse of a Minor

Jul 17, 2013

A Kokhanok man has been indicted on charges of sexually assaulting an underage male family member.  Following his arrest Tuesday, Edwin Zackar is now in custody in Anchorage on 30 thousand dollars bail. 

State troopers first investigated the assaults in 2011.  They say Zackar abused the victim between 2007 and 2009.  Last week, a grand jury in Anchorage indicted Zackar on one count of Sexual Abuse of a Minor in the Second Degree and two counts of Sexual Abuse of a Minor in the Third Degree. 

The court issued a warrant, and Zackar was arrested Tuesday.
