On 03/05/2021, at about 4:00 PM, the Juneau Police Department received a report involving the sexual abuse of a minor. The complainant reported they had recently learned that 28-year-old Juneau resident, Matthew Aaron Dundore, had sexual contact with a 12-year-old female Juneau resident. The incident occurred on or about February 12th, 2021, while Dundore and the 12-year-old female were both in Anchorage. Dundore and the 12-year-old victim are known to each other, but they are not related.

Following interviews with the victim and Dundore,  Detectives applied for an arrest warrant for Dundore through the Anchorage court, which was later granted.

On 3/10/21, Dundore came to JPD and turned himself in to police. Dundore was taken to the jail and held on two counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the 1st degree.

On 03/11/2021, an Anchorage Grand Jury indicted Dundore on the two counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the 1st degree. Both charges are considered unclassified felonies. Bail was set at $50,000.
