Troopers say around 5 a.m. Sunday they responded to a report that the 18-year-old was robbed at the Jim Creek Recreational Campground and that the “suspects’ vehicle was observed disabled on the Glenn Highway north of Eklutna.”

AST along with Anchorage police responded and arrested 19-year-old Darrion Watson and 18-year-old Wyatt Flotre.
