Man charged in sexual assault of St. Kate's student

| No Comments

A Hastings man was arrested Tuesday and later charged with the Nov. 19 sexual assault of a St. Catherine's student walking in Minneapolis, WCCO said.
The student was walking to St. Catherine's from Riverside Park when she was approached by a male asking for money. He claimed to have a gun and took her by the arm, WCCO said.
"He took the victim onto a trail in a wooded side of the park and robbed the victim of cash, her backpack, wallet and financial cards. Then, the complaint says he forcibly pulled down the victim's pants, pulled off her panties and sexually assaulted her with his finger. He also struck the victim in the face, leaving an abrasion," WCCO said.
Louis Richard Oliver, 48, who is also known as Terry Woods, was arrested after Regions Hospital security officers noticed him approaching women in the parking lot, the Pioneer Press said. Oliver was allegedly asking women for jumper cables for his car, WCCO said. When security went to where he said his car was parked, they found nothing, WCCO said. A Ramsey County deputy recognized Oliver from a sketch of the man who allegedly assaulted the St. Kate's student, WCCO said. After Oliver was detained, a background check found he is a registered sex offender, WCCO said.
The victim of the alleged assault confirmed Oliver as her assailant in a photographic lineup, WCCO said.
"Oliver faces one felony count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison and/or a $40,000 fine plus conditional release," WCCO said.
