Rape suspect arrested
St. Paul police arrested a 19-year-old man Saturday in connection with last week's rape of a 17-year-old girl last, according to the Star Tribune.
The man was booked into the Ramsey County jail on suspicion of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and an outstanding probation-violation warrant.
The man is suspected of forcing his way into the girls home on St. Paul's East Side.
The girl was treated and released from Regions Hospital in St. Paul. DNA from last weeks rape is being analyzed to see if there is a connection between this rape and a stranger rape in January that has yet to be solved, according to the Pioneer Press.
