Anchorage jury convicts man of sexual assault

ANCHORAGE — A 48-year-old Anchorage man will be sentenced April 4 following his conviction on sexual assault charges.

State prosecutors say Ronald McIntosh was convicted Friday of raping and assaulting a woman in April.

The trial lasted three weeks.

Prosecutors say McIntosh strangled the woman and hit her with fists and a studded belt but that she escaped by climbing through the window of McIntosh’s apartment.

She was spotted at 1 a.m. by a passer-by on the Old Seward Highway. She had no shoes as she attempted to flag down a car.

McIntosh was convicted of first- and second-degree sexual assault and three counts of felony assault.

Public defender Chong Yim said Monday the case will be appealed.

Prosecutors say McIntosh faces a sentence of 46 to 106 years.
