Native village man charged after 8-hour rampage

A resident of a rural western Alaska Native village was charged with rape, attempted murder and other crimes after an eight-hour rampage.

Angelo A. Sugar, 26, faces a total of 19 charges. He is accused of terrorizing his family and friends, raping a 13-year-old girl and attempting to shoot others and himself after getting drunk on a home-brew of alcohol.

The village of Nunam Iqua has no public safety officer or police officer. Mayor Edward Adams said the village ran out of money last year.

It took the Alaska State Troopers four hours to get to the village. During that time, the rape allegedly occurred.
