Tetlin man accused of sexually assaulting family member.

A 49 year old man from the Alaska Highway village of Tetlin is in jail, accused of sexually assaulting a family member early Sunday morning.

Leonard Mark is charged with First Degree Sexual Assault, and Incest.

Mark was arraigned Tuesday and is being held without bail at the Fairbanks Correctional Center.

The woman, identified in records as "D.S." told Alaska State Troopers that Leonard Mark regularly assaulted her in a sexual manner between 2007 and 2010.

She says she alerted her grandparents, but police involvement was never pursued.

Questioned by troopers, Mark said he went to the victims house early Sunday morning to look for food.

He said he saw the victim lying in bed but did not touch her.
