The man accused of assaulting a 7-year-old girl on an Anchorage city street last week was arraigned on assault and robbery charges at the Anchorage Jail court Friday.
Byron Edward Syvinski, 32, is being charged with first-degree robbery, third-degree assault and fourth-degree assault.
Syvinski had been held at Alaska Regional Hospital from the time of the incident until Thursday.
According to the complaint, Syvinski forced Am-marie Martin, 7, off her bike, punched her in the head, knocking her unconscious. He punched her twice more while she was on the ground.
Martin remains hospitalized. As of Friday, her condition had been upgraded from critical to stable.
According to the police complaint, Syvinski displayed signs of “excited delirium” when he was taken into custody, in full body restraints, after Sunday’s incident.
The term "excited delirium" is used by police and medical personnel to describe a state of agitated, aggression characterized by hallucinations and delusions.
