Juneau man indicted on charge of sexual assault

Authorities seek information about his location.

A Juneau man has been indicted on a sexual assault charge, according to Alaska Department of Law.

Daniel T. Foster, 29, was indicted on Thursday by a Juneau grand jury on a charge of first-degree sexual assault, according to the department.

The indictment is based on an incident that happened Jan. 13, 2020 at a Juneau hotel, according to the department. At that time, a hotel employee allegedly entered the room of a person known to the employee and committed the offense.

The hotel where the alleged offense occurred was not identified in the department news release announcing the indictment. If convicted, Foster faces up to 99 years imprisonment, according to the department.

After the indictment, a $50,000 arrest warrant was issued for Foster’s arrest, according to the department. Alaska Department of Law encouraged people with information of his whereabouts to contact Juneau Police Department at (907)500-0600.
