Teen boy suspected of Aldi kidnap, rape attempt caught trying another sexual assault

Brooklyn Park police arrested him Friday lunchtime.

A teenage boy suspected of kidnapping a woman outside an Aldi in Brooklyn Park and attempting to rape her has been caught.

Brooklyn Park police said they arrested the juvenile after another attempted sexual assault, this time in a park in the 5900 block of 6th Avenue North.

Around 12:25 p.m. on Friday, a 20-year-old woman reported she'd been attacked by a suspect who tried to sexually assault her.

She managed to fight him off and he fled on foot, chased by the victim and her uncle to a nearby house, where he broke in.

The people inside the house didn't know him and threw him out, with the victim and her uncle then helping police arrest him outside.
