Suspect arrested in connection with sexual assault near St. Kate's

| No Comments

A man was arrested Thursday in connection with a sexual assault that occurred in Minneapolis Nov. 19 as the victim walked to St. Catherine's University, news sources report.

The 48-year-old man is being held in Hennepin County Jail on suspicion of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. He has not been charged, the Star Tribune reported.

The woman attacked is in her 20s and is a student at St. Kate's. She was near West River Parkway and 27th Avenue South when the attack occurred, Kare11 reported.

The arrest of the man occurred Tuesday, after security officers at Region's Hospital in St. Paul received a complaint from two women. The women said a suspicious man was approaching women near the parking area, the Star Tribune reported.

The man was arrested on an unrelated outstanding warrant, and Ramsey County deputies noticed that he "bore a striking resemblance" to a composite sketch that was released to the news media Tuesday regarding the sexual assault at St. Kate's, Kare11 reported.

The man has a criminal history in Minnesota for theft and domestic abuse convictions, the Star Tribune reported.
