ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Anchorage police say a 14-year-old girl is in critical condition days after a 26-year-old man injected her with heroin.

Sean Warner is charged with drug-related felonies in the case. Court documents say Warner tried to revive the girl himself and didn't immediately call police.

Police say the girl continued to be treated Tuesday at an Anchorage hospital, where she was taken Friday with a drug overdose. Charging documents say the girl, identified only as J.D., was found to have heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine in her system.

Warner's bail has been set at $90,000.

KTUU reports that Warner's father and a friend dispute the allegations and they say Warner is a Navy veteran who saved lives as a medic in Afghanistan. The two said Warner had struggled since returning from the war.
