ANCHORAGE — A man already convicted of two sexual assaults against young men, one in 1985 and the other a prison rape in 1994, is scheduled for arraignment Saturday in Anchorage on new charges of rape.
Kelvin Norris, 51, faces charges that he raped or sexually assaulted four young men over the past year. Anchorage police say Norris had the same modus operandi in the attacks: Lure young men to a hotel or his Spenard home with alcohol; get them drunk; assault them.
The victims were homeless or couch surfing, police say. They were in their teens or 20s.
"He uses the force-level required to gain compliance, from intimidation to physical assaults," said Anchorage police Det. John Vandervalk, who investigated the case.
Norris punched one man and threw another against a wall to get them to comply, according to the police affidavit filed in court. During one assault, Norris called the victim "baby girl."
When confronted by police, Norris denied the attacks.
At least one alleged victim doesn't remember the attack. He met Norris at the Brother Francis Shelter and remembers Norris promising him alcohol and girls at a downtown budget hotel. Then, after drinking R&R whiskey, he remembers Norris shutting the door to the hotel room. His memory blacks out until he is running in Spenard. When he went to the restroom, he discovered signs that something had gone terribly wrong, the affidavit said.
