A 43-year-old man was arrested Thursday in the sexual assault of a 33-year-old woman walking in the predawn hours in Minneapolis on Saturday, the Star Tribune reports.

The woman told police she was attacked after she stepped off a bus and was dragged to a secluded location.

Police on Wednesday released a photo still of the suspect taken from a bus surveillance video, and investigators say that helped lead to an arrest.

Three women walking at night in Minneapolis were sexually assaulted in a span of three weeks, and there have now been arrests in two of the cases.
