Anchorage man arrested for panhandling, exposure
Anchorage police said they arrested a 46-year-old man from Anchorage on charges of aggressive panhandling and indecent exposure after he approached a customer at the Brown Jug in Eagle River at about 4:15 p.m. on Nov. 24. The customer told police that Dominic Debonneville came up to him while he sat in his vehicle and demanded money, according to a report summary provided by police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker. When the customer refused, Debonneville “started demanding transportation and pulled down his pants exposing his penis,” the report said. Debonneville is on probation, apparently for a sexual assault case in which he pleaded guilty to evidence tampering, according to a state courts database. He was taken to Anchorage Jail on $2,000 bail.
Officer sees familiar face
An Anchorage police officer on Nov. 24 spotted a 22-year-old Anchorage man identified as the guy who eluded him on a traffic stop for speeding, police said. Clyde Taylor was on probation for felony driving under the influence and had a revoked license, police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker said. The officer obtained a $200 warrant for the eluding charge; the warrant hadn’t yet been served as of Wednesday, Nov. 28.
Domestic assault reports
Anchorage police said they arrested a 37-year-old Chugiak man on Nov. 24 for fourth-degree assault, sixth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance, and third-degree criminal mischief after witnesses said he threatened and then punched a household member and shattered a television set. He also was found to be in possession of marijuana. He was taken to Anchorage Jail on $1,000 bail.
In another, unrelated arrest on Nov. 25, police said a 38-year-old Eagle River man was arrested for assault after a physical disturbance with a household member.
