Two Arrested in Beating of Homeless Man

A man and a juvenile are in custody, accused of beating a homeless man in east Anchorage.

Anchorage police Lt. Dave Parker says 20-year-old Kenneth Towksjhea Jr. has been arrested on burglary and assault charges. He will be arraigned Saturday. A juvenile is also in custody in the early Friday morning beating.

Parker says Daniel Workman was found outside a mobile home, bleeding from heads wounds. He’s being treated at a hospital for a lacerated scalp and broken facial bones.

An officer and a police dog tracked four suspects to other trailers in the mobile home park. Towksjhea and the juvenile were arrested, and Parker says the other two men were determined to only be witnesses to the beating.
