Alaska State Troopers are investigating a sexual assault alleged to have taken place aboard a cruise ship.
Troopers say a female crew member on the Star Princess reported being assaulted by two other crew members as the ship was sailing through Chatham Strait on its way to Juneau.
Spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says the assault reportedly took place early Monday morning.
Troopers have identified two male suspects but no charges have been filed yet.
Ipsen says alcohol was involved.
She says the alleged victim and suspects remain on board the ship.
