Anchorage Man Sentenced for April 2013 Rape

April 7, 2014

On April 4, 2014, 48-year-old Ronald McIntosh of Anchorage was sentenced to serve 43 years in prison for raping and assaulting a woman in April 2013. McIntosh was convicted following a three week jury trial of sexual assault in the first degree, sexual assault in the second degree, and assault in the second degree, third degree and fourth degree.

McIntosh strangled the woman and struck her multiple times with his fists and a studded belt. The woman escaped from the attack by climbing out of the window of McIntosh’s apartment. A passerby on Old Seward Highway observed the woman, shoeless and flagging down cars, at approximately 1:00 a.m. and stopped to assist her. The assault was reported to Anchorage Police who, led by Detective Brett Sarber, investigated the crime.

McIntosh had been previously convicted of more than 30 crimes, including three felony level theft and drug offenses. McIntosh will be placed on probation and will be required to register as a sex offender when released from prison.
