Soldotna man arrested on assault charges

A Soldotna man was arrested on charges of domestic violence assault Monday night.

Levi Smith, 19, was arrested Monday at approximately 11:54 p.m. after Alaska State Troopers responded to a domestic violence report on Funny River Road in Soldotna. There, troopers discovered Smith had assaulted a family member, according to a dispatch.

Smith is set to be arraigned at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Kenai Courthouse on one charge of assault in the second degree, one charge of assault in the second degree and one charge of interfering with a domestic violence crime report.

If convicted of all charges, Smith would face up to 12 years in prison and a fine of up to $120,000.

Smith is being held in the Wildwood Pretrial Facility with no bail pending his Wednesday arraignment.

The victim of the assault was treated for injuries at Central Peninsula Hospital, according to the dispatch.
