Convicted felon, Crim Takumjenak was arraigned on Burglary and assault charges on Thursday.

Alaska State Troopers report that they arrested a Russian Mission man for an arrest warrant issued for Burglary I, Assault III and IV and Disorderly Conduct on Wednesday.

Convicted Felon, 35-year-old Crim Takumjenak, was contacted at his residence in Russian Mission by Aniak-based troopers at 1:45 on Wednesday.

Takumjenak was in the news ten years ago when he was arrested on charges of Attempted Murder for the stabbing of his girlfriend in 2006. Takumjenak repeatedly stabbed his victim, and when troopers responded to the scene, she was in critical condition and struggling to breathe.

Although initially charged with Attempted Murder I, That charge was ultimately dropped in a plea agreement when Takumjenak pled out to Felony Assault I and Interfering with the Report of Domestic Violence in 2007. He was sentenced in September of 2007 to 11 years in prison.

That case has now been re-opened with a petition to revoke his probation.

Takumjenak was arraigned on the current charges on Thursday morning in St Marys. His next court date is on March 4th, when he appears for a preliminary hearing.
