The man wanted in connection with the repeated vandalism of an elderly woman's Minneapolis home has been arrested.
Minneapolis Police Department announced Friday it has made an arrest in the long-running saga that has seen the home of 89-year-old Frances Mosley on the 5100 block of Cedar Avenue South vandalized nine times since late March.
The most recent incident was this past Tuesday, with her home hit three times since Thanksgiving alone.
Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder said that detectives worked with the victim's family and community members "to develop a suspect and obtain DNA evidence."
On Friday, officers executed a search warrant on the 3500 block of Park Avenue South and arrested a 44-year-old man.
He has been booked into Hennepin County Jail on probable cause stalking and threats of violence.
Mosley has lived in the same house near Lake Nokomis for more than 50 years, a Go Fund Me page organized by her son says, with her home was first vandalized the night of March 25.
The vandalism has mostly involved her windows being smashed, causing her thousands of dollars-worth of damage.
There are no details yet as to what motivated the suspect to target Mosley's home. More details should be revealed when he is charged.
BMTN does not typically identify suspects until they have been charged with a crime.
