Police want to hear from public in Koenig case

Anchorage police investigating the abduction of a barista are asking for the public’s help.

Police ask anyone who was in the parking lot of the midtown Alaska Club on Tudor Road last Wednesday night between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. to call them.

Samantha Koenig was abducted from the Common Grounds Espresso coffee shack located at the east end of the health club’s parking lot. Police say an armed man wearing a dark hooded sweat shirt forced Koenig toward Old Seward Highway on foot as she closed up about 8 p.m.

Police also ask if anyone saw anything suspicious as they drove along Tudor Road or were at nearby businesses during those same hours to also call 907-786-2460.
