Man indicted for suspected sexual assault at church

ANCHORAGE — A grand jury has indicted a man suspected of sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl at a church in northeast Anchorage.

 

Prosecutors say the grand jury indicted 29-year-old David Chiklak on one count of felony sexual abuse of a minor.

Chiklak was arrested Jan. 27.

A woman told police she was in a bathroom with a girl at the church and heard someone call the child out. The woman a short time later heard the girl crying in the men’s bathroom.

Police say the woman entered the men’s bathroom and saw a man with his belt unbuckled standing over the girl.

Parishioners detained Chiklak in the parking lot. Police arrested Chiklak and said he was not a member of the church but had attended a service with others.
