Man charged in assault of women at Library
The Pioneer Press had reported on October 1, that a University of Minnesota Graduate student had been attacked by an unknown man in a University Library, Wilson Library. The first reports were vague, and stated that the women had yelled for help when being held against her will in a remote library staircase. The Pioneer Press said other people came to her aid and the attacker was chased out of the building. They gave an accurate description of the man, and that was most likely what helped catch him.
Two weeks later, the Star Tribune reported that the man had been found and was charged with false imprisonment and failure to register as a predatory offender. The documents showed the man, Matthew G. Pengre, 35, is a level 2 non compliant predatory offender. Last year, he was also charged for the attack of another female university student at the University Village Apartments.
