Prosecutor files kidnapping, abuse charges in airport case

Posted: Friday, August 15, 2003

ANCHORAGE - The man accused of snatching a 3-year-old as her mother slept at the Anchorage airport was charged Thursday with kidnapping and sexual abuse of a minor.

Anchorage District Attorney Bob Linton filed the charges against Alexander Harry Guest, 38, who had been held on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender.

Charging documents said Guest admitted to taking the child, inappropriately touching her and laying down and rubbing his groin against her.

Guest was convicted of sexual abuse of a minor in 1997 and attempted sexual abuse of a minor in 1999.

According to the prosecutor's complaint, at about 3:12 a.m. Monday a bystander at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport called airport police and said a distraught mother was in the domestic terminal frantically looking for her 3-year-old daughter.

Airport police quickly distributed a description of the missing girl to officers, other security personnel, maintenance workers and other employees.
