Idaho Authorities Arrest Alaskan Man on Sexual Abuse Charges
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers say a 52-year-old man has been arrested in Idaho after two women in Alaska told police he sexually abused them. Trooper said Friday night that Anthony Gilliam is in custody in Freemont, Idaho, awaiting extradition to Alaska. He was arrested Friday by the Ashton Police Department and the Freemont County Sheriff’s Department. Last November, a 23-year-old woman from Wasilla reported to Alaska state troopers that she and her 22-year-old sister had been sexual abused by Gilliam. After an investigation, the Palmer District Court issued a warrant for Gilliam’s arrest on Friday for 22 counts of sexual abuse of a minor and three counts of coercion. Gilliam’s bail was set at $500,000.
