Fairbanks man accused of raping acquaintance.

Alaska State Troopers are investigating the rape of an unidentified acquaintance yesterday in the College Road area.

In a brief news release, Troopers say the alleged assault took place Tuesday, and resulted in the arrest of 21 year old Tristan Stidston.

Stidston is charged with a single count of First Degree Sexual Assault, an Unclassified Felony offense that carries a maximum 99 years in jail.

Very little information is being released in the case, but what is known is that Stidston and the alleged victim were acquaintances.

Stidston is scheduled to make his first court appearance Thursday afternoon in Fairbanks District Court.
