An Akiak man is facing assault charges after an attack on his family last week troopers reported.
According to the report, 58-year-old Samuel Lake had attacked his daughter mid-week last week by putting her in a headlock and strangling her. The daughter escaped serious injury after her mother intervened and Lake let her go.
A short time later, troopers report, Lake chased both his daughter and wife with an axe. Both were able to escape Lake by running off on a 4-wheeler.
Lake was transported to the Yukon-Kuskokwim Correctional Center in Bethel, where he was remanded on one count of Assault II and one count of Assault III.
