Lottery winner from Alaska assaulted

The convicted sex offender who ironically won a $500 000 Alaskan lottery designed to raise funds for sexually abused victims last week (see previous InfoPowa report) himself became a victim when he was subjected to an unprovoked street assault, the Juneau Empire newspaper reports.

Alec Ahsoak (53), the man who won the big prize, was subjected to an apparently unprovoked attack on a downtown Anchorage street this week, the victim of a metal pipe wielding adult male, according to police officials.

A police spokesman said Ahsoak was attacked when a man approached him to ask if he was the man who won the $500,000 jackpot. "There was no apparent attempt at robbery," police lieutenant Dave Parker said. "He was struck eight to 10 times, and then he threw his Pepsi at the assailant and he ran for Phyllis' Cafe and the assailant ran off."

Ahsoak was taken to hospital with his injuries and discharged the following morning, whilst police reported that they had arrested 20-year-old Brandon J. Hughes of Los Angeles for the assault. Police told local television station KTUU-TV in Anchorage that Hughes did not know Ahsoak, increasing the mystery surrounding the attack.
