May 15, 2019

An alcohol-fueled sexual assault in Newtok has landed a man in the Bethel jail. Troopers were called Friday about the assault. They arrived Monday. Their investigation revealed that Jonathan Usugan, age 41, allegedly broke into a home Friday morning and sexually assaulted a woman. Usugan is already on the state’s sex offender registry. He is now in the Yukon Kuskokwim Correctional Center facing two charges for sexual assault and one for entering the house illegally. Troopers report that alcohol was “a factor in the incident.”
