Suspect Arrested for Rape at Light-rail

A 20-year-old man was arrested in connection with a rape at a Minneapolis light-rail station, which can be read about on the Star Tribune website.

The Minneapolis man was arrested by St. Paul police on Friday afternoon and is being held in Hennepin County Jail pending charges.

The investigation is being conducted by Metro Transit Police, who said the woman was abducted at gunpoint at 1:55 a.m. on Oct. 4.

She then went to a friend's house and called authorities and was taken to the hospital.

This was the first rape involving the light-rail since it started running in 2004.

An A.P. story on WCCO's website did a good job using quotes to cover this story, but had less information overall. They also mentioned that the victim was a 44-year-old woman, which the Strib did not.
