Anchorage Caller Reports Stolen Vehicle, Arrested for Domestic Violence

Early Tuesday morning an Anchorage man called in to Alaska State Troopers called in to report that his black 2002 Audi had been stolen. The man identified himself as 36-year-old James Barber.

She told troopers during the preliminary investigation interview that she had been assaulted by Barber. She went on to say that she took Barber’s vehicle in order to flee from him.

As a result, Barber was located and arrested on Assault-II (DV) and Assault-IV (DV) and transported to jail.
