WASILLA — The Alaska State Troopers have released the identity of the suspect in the robbery of a gas station on Oct. 19.

Daniel Anufriev, 18, of Homer, is the suspect, troopers say, and has been indicted by a Palmer Grand Jury on charges of robbery in the first degree and two counts of assault in the third degree. Anfriev was arrested in Anchor Point in Oct. 25. The weapon used in the robbery was found Oct. 24.

AST responded to a robbery in progress just after 2 a.m. Oct. 19 at the Chevron off Settlers Bay Drive. Four males, with suspected ages between 16 and 22, entered the store according to troopers, and Anufriev, held employees at gunpoint, demanding cash. About $100 was taken and the group left in a white Chevy or GMC crew cab heading north on Knik-Goose Bay Road, troopers said in a dispatch posted Oct. 19.

The three unarmed males were ruled out as suspects.
