3rd woman walking at night in Minneapolis reports sex assault


Another woman who was walking in Minneapolis at night has reported being sexually assaulted – the third case in three weeks, the Star Tribune reports.

The victim in the most recent attack was a 33-year-old woman, who told police that she was assaulted just after 2 a.m. Saturday near E. 34th Street and Chicago Avenue, the newspaper reports. She told investigators she had just stepped off a bus when the attacker pulled her to a secluded area, sexually assaulted her, and took her cell phone and jacket, the Star Tribune says.

In another incident that happened before sunrise Nov. 19, a 26-year-old woman was attacked along Stevens Square Park.

No one has been arrested in those two cases.

A man has been arrested in an incident that also happened Nov. 19. In that case, a female college student told police she was attacked while walking before dawn near the Minneapolis campus of St. Catherine University.
