Juneau police arrested a 21-year-old man last Saturday after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in the woods above the downtown cruise ship docks.
In a press release, police say Kevin Arnold Slats was arrested and charged with felony 1st degree sexual assault following an investigation. He’s being held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center on no bail.
The 37-year-old victim contacted police at about 1:30 Saturday afternoon. She suffered non-life threatening injuries and was treated at Bartlett Regional Hospital.
Police obtained a search warrant and collected physical evidence from Slats as well as the scene of the alleged attack.
JPD says the victim and Slats knew each other and alcohol appears to have been a factor.
