Jerry Andrew Active, 24, is accused of breaking into a home in Anchorage, Alaska this past weekend. He allegedly sexually assaulted an elderly woman, killing her and her husband, and sexually assaulting their 2-year-old great-granddaughter before fleeing the scene.
Police were called to the home shortly before 8 p.m. Saturday. Upon arrival, authorities found Sorn Sreap, 73, and husband Touch Chea, 71, dead; also found in the home was the couple’s great-granddaughter who had been sexually assaulted. Sreap and Chea died due to blunt force trauma to the head and face.
Authorities said the 2-year-old’s child’s parents took their 4-year-old to the movies on Saturday, leaving their youngest in the care of the child’s great-grandparents. When they returned, the front door was locked and there was a chain on from the inside, blocking their way. The father was able to open the door a few inches and saw the bodies of Chea and Sreap on the floor. He broke a window, ran inside, yelled for someone to call 911, and found the suspect naked with his 2-year-old.
The 2-year-old was taken to a medical facility that specializes in the treatment of sexual abuse. She underwent surgery for her injuries. Authorities believe the attack was random and the suspect did not know the victims personally.
Active had previously been convicted of sexual assault that involved an 11-year-old child. He is currently being charged with first and second degree murder, sexual assault and burglary.
