FAIRBANKS — A Ruby man is accused of touching an 8-year-old boy inappropriately this summer.

Johnny Michael Ambrose was charged Friday with second-degree felony sexual abuse of a minor. Ambrose told Alaska State Troopers that he did not touch the boy, according to the criminal complaint against him.

The boy told troopers Ambrose touched him three times in one incident some time during the summer in Ruby.

Also charged Friday in Ruby was Ambrose’s 19-year-old son, Darrick Ambrose. He is accused of trying to punch his father in the face Thursday. He was charged with misdemeanor assault.
