St. Paul girl raped Wednesday, arrest made Saturday

A 17-year-old girl was raped late Wednesday when a man forced his way into her home on St. Paul's East Side, reported the Pioneer Press. Police arrested a 19-year-old St. Paul man late Saturday, reported the Star Tribune.
Police received a call shortly after 5 p.m. Wednesday from a home on the 600 block of East Jessamine Avenue. The girl said a man had knocked on the door, then forced his way in and assaulted her. She was taken to Regions Hospital.
The man, whose name was not released, was arrested around 8 p.m. Saturday. He was booked into Ramsey County jail on suspicion of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and on an outstanding probation-violation warrant.
Police offered little information about the case but said they were issuing an announcement about the arrest "because of the grave concerns of the residents of the East Side and all of St. Paul's citizens after this brazen attack."
