A Nikiski man is facing multiple charges, including attempted murder, assault and sexual abuse of minors after being arrested in Anchorage, according to an April 2 dispatch from the Alaska State Troopers.

On March 1, the Soldotna Major Crimes Unit began an investigation into George Napoka, 19, of Nikiski for sexual abuse of multiple minors. Early on the morning of March 3, Napoka stole a Subaru Legacy and drove to before turning around and heading south, according to the trooper dispatch.

At about 8:51 a.m. on March 3, Napoka crossed the centerline at Mile 52 of the Seward Highway and drove into an oncoming semitruck, according to troopers. Napoka allegedly collided intentionally with the truck in an attempt to commit suicide.

Napoka was flown to Anchorage by LifeMed to be treated for life-threatening injuries, according to a March 3 dispatch from Alaska State Troopers. The April 2 dispatch refers to Napoka’s injuries as “serious,” not life-threatening.

The status of the semitruck driver was not provided by press time Thursday evening.

On April 1, the Anchorage detachment of the Alaska Bureau of Investigation contacted Napoka at a residence in Anchorage and arrested him on multiple charges, according to the April 2 dispatch.

Napoka is currently being held at Anchorage Correctional Complex without bail and is facing the following 22 charges:

One count of first-degree indecent exposure involving a victim under the age of 16, a class B felony.

One count of attempted second-degree sexual abuse of a minor involving a victim between 13 and 15, a class B felony.

Two counts of third-degree sexual abuse of a minor between the age of 13 and 15, a class C felony.

Two counts of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor involving a victim under the age of 13, a class B felony.

Two counts of first-degree vehicle theft, a class C felony.

Two counts of third-degree criminal mischief, a class C felony.

Two counts of attempted assault in the first degree, a class A felony.

Two counts of attempted assault in the second degree, a class B felony.

Two counts of third-degree assault, a class C felony.

One count of reckless endangerment, a class A misdemeanor.
