Police: Anchorage man accused of sexual assault might have more victims

Anchorage police say a man arrested on a sexual assault charge Thursday might have more victims.

Kayshawn Anthony Dyett, 21, was arrested on a charge of first-degree sexual assault stemming from two incidents last month, the Anchorage Police Department said in a written statement.

Police said that on April 15, Dyett picked up a woman around 9 p.m., drove to Earthquake Park in Anchorage's Turnagain Arm neighborhood and sexually assaulted her.

That same evening, Dyett picked up another woman, drove to a Midtown Anchorage hotel and sexually assaulted her in a hotel room, police said.

In both instances, Dyett was an acquaintance of the victim, police said.

"Detectives believe the suspect may have sexually assaulted additional victims," police said.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect or knows of other victims is asked to call the police non-emergency line at 311, or make an anonymous tip at Anchorage Crime Stoppers.
