Press Release

Anchorage Man Indicted for Fred Meyer Robbery

December 2, 2016

(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) On December 1, 2016, 31 year old Steven Treadway was indicted by the Anchorage grand jury for robbery and assault. The indictment resulted from an incident at the Fred Meyer on Northern Lights Boulevard in Anchorage.

At approximately 5:23 p.m. on November 20, 2016, Anchorage Police Department Officers responded to a 911 call reporting that a man had stabbed a Fred Meyer loss prevention officer. Officers responded and found several people detaining Treadway. Officers observed that the loss prevention officer had a small laceration on the left side of his neck. Treadway allegedly stabbed the loss prevention officer in the neck in order to retain items he had stolen from the store.

Treadway was arrested by the Anchorage Police on November 20 and has remained in the custody of the Department of Corrections since his arrest. He is being held on $2,500 cash or corporate bail. He is expected to be arraigned on the indictment on Monday, December 5, 2016.

If convicted, Treadway faces a sentence of up to 20 years in prison for the robbery and up to 10 years in prison for the assault. A defendant’s sentence is determined by the judge who must consider the circumstances of the offense, the impact on the victim(s) and the community, and the potential for rehabilitation of the defendant.

The charges in the indictment are only allegations and are not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the prosecution must prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
