Teen Suspected In Powderhorn Assaults On The Loose
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – One of teenagers accused in several sexual assaults in Powderhorn Park last November is currently on the loose.
Police said they believe the 15-year-old suspect, who had been ordered to undergo electronic home monitoring while living with his grandmother, cut off his ankle bracelet monitor on Wednesday and fled.
The corrections department notified probation officers with Minneapolis Police and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
The suspect and three other juvenile males have been charged in connection with the Nov. 24 incidents.
In one, a mother was assaulted at Powderhorn Park while out cross-country skiing with her children. Shortly thereafter, an 18-year-old woman and 16-year-old girl were attacked in a nearby garage. A group of boys pulled a gun on them, ordered them to take off their clothes and took turns sexually assaulting them.
The other suspects were last reported to be in custody.
