ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Update, 5:20 p.m.: Anchorage police said in an updated release Wednesday that officers responded to a residence on Ocean Point Dr., off Old Seward, in an attempt reach Alexander V. Dekhtiar, 27, who had three outstanding warrants.

Two people in the household exited, and patrol officers and members of the Crisis Negotiation Team moved in, attempting to talk Alexander out of the home for the next couple of hours.

“Alexander refused to interact with them,” police wrote. “After multiple K9 announcements were made, K9 Rylin entered the residence and located Alexander hiding in the crawl space. Alexander continued to resist arrest even after K9 Rylin had contact with him.”

Alexander reportedly became compliant once a Taser was deployed. He was taken into custody and treated at a local hospital for minor injuries, according to the same release.

Neither the officers nor K9 Rylin were injured, police said. Alexander was remanded at the Anchorage Jail on his warrants and additionally charged with resisting arrest.
