In the fall of 2017, APD’s Special Victims Unit was assigned a sexual assault case wherein 34-year-old Alphonso L. Mosley III was identified as the suspect. As a result, Mosley’s DNA was obtained. That DNA was entered into CODIS (DNA index system) which linked Mosely to unsolved local sexual assault cases in 2009 and 2012. More recently Mosely’s DNA was linked to an unsolved 2019 sexual assault case via CODIS.
On August 8, 2019, an Anchorage grand jury indicted Mosely on three counts of Sexual Assault I for the 2012, 2017, and 2019 cases. The 2009 case was not pursued as the victim is now deceased. In all of the cases it does not appear that Mosely and his victims knew one another prior to the assaults.
At 6:37 PM on August 10, 2019, swing shift patrol officers saw Mosely walking in the area of Post Road and E 3rd Avenue; he was taken into custody on his outstanding felony warrant and remanded at the Anchorage Jail.
Police are concerned there may be more victims. If you believe you were a victim of Mosley’s, or have any information pertinent to his cases, please call Sergeant Neer at 907-786-2471.
