AK man sought on sexual assault charge surrenders

Posted: Sunday, December 13, 2009

NOORVIK - An Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman says a 26-year-old Kotzebue man sought in a sexual assault surrendered Friday night after four days on the run.

Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says a family member convinced Jason Douglas Black to give up. He was arrested without incident on warrants charging him with first-degree sexual assault and third-degree assault.

Troopers said earlier that Black was armed and had threatened at least one officer with a rifle. That incident in Noorvik is the source of the third-degree assault charge.

Ipsen told the Anchorage Daily News that Black had been snowmobiling between villages in northwest Alaska. The reported sexual assault took place Monday in Kiana.
