2 Women Assaulted In Rosemount; Suspects Sought

ROSEMOUNT, Minn. (WCCO) — Police are asking for the public’s help to identify a group of people who assaulted two women in Rosemount on June 12.

According to Rosemount Police, two women were walking home from a convenience store around 2:02 a.m. at the intersection of Cameo Avenue and Lower 147th Street.

The women told police they passed a loud group of one woman and three men. As they walked by, the women told the group they should quiet down because police were in the area.

The one woman in the group then allegedly jumped on the back of one of the other women and began to assault her, according to police. They eventually were knocked to the ground where two men in the group joined in on the assault. The other woman tried to stop the assault but was also knocked down.

Jacqueline Fritz was one of the women assaulted. She said the experience was a nightmare.

“And they were throwing me down, and then I’d get up and try to help her, and yeah it was just a nightmare,” she said.

The group stopped the assault as a car drove toward them but not before one of the men kicked the woman on the ground in the mouth, breaking her jaw, according to police.

The suspects then walked west on Lower 147th Street and turned north on Canada Avenue.

Rosemount Police Chief Gary Kalstabakken called it a random and brutal incident.

“And to actually come back and kick her in the mouth while she was still on the ground is much more brutal. Crime never makes sense but this certainly is unusual in how it occurred,”  he said.

NewsRadio 830 WCCO’s Susie Jones Reports

The four suspects are described as:

1)            A white woman in her early 20s, around 5-feet, 4-inches tall and weighing between 130-140 pounds. She had sandy blond, shoulder length, slightly curly hair and was wearing khaki-colored shorts with pockets down the side.

2)            A light brown skinned man in his early 20s, around 5-feet, 10-inches to 6-feet tall with a slender build. He had dark hair in a “buzz” cut and was wearing khaki-colored shorts and a T-shirt.

3)            A white man with very pale skin in his early 20s, around 5-feet, 9-inches tall with a very thin build.

4)            A white man, around 6-feet tall, wearing a baseball hat, jeans and T-shirt. 

Anyone with information about the assault or who knows the suspects is asked to contact Officer Beth Richtsmeier with the Rosemount Police Department at 651-423-4491.

    Why is it I always miss this stuff? I would have loved to have been passing by. The police would have found all of the suspects in the local hospital………punks…..their families must be so proud of their garbage……..

    • Jim

      Internet tough guy right here, folks. Check it out!

    • Jean

      To Kevin…I’m with you. I think driving by would have been one use for the car. Four speed bumps…

  • JamieinMN

    These poor women :-( I’m so sorry this had to happen to you. We need to keep these animals off of our streets. If you can’t behave like a normal human-being in society, then you don’t belong in society.

  • Mel

    White trash at it’s finest. I hope they find who did this so they spend some time in jail and get their butts sued. Most people who get their jaw broken have to have it wired shut for 6 weeks. That means six weeks of sipping your food through a straw, not a pleasant experience. Hopefully these people brag about it to the wrong person, cause that’s what trash does…brags; and then they get caught.

    • jessica kaczynski

      yes, they did such a great job with the surgery they did not have 2 wire her jaw, but she still cannot eat any type of solid foods for six weeks… she also, will lose almost all of her bottom teeth and her ins. wont pay for the surgery or teeth that she will have 2 have replaced, because they say its cosmetic! not only that but, she has 2 GREAT children, she is a single mom and her son just graduated the weekend it happened… its really sad…

  • Richard Paulus

    Nothing good happens at 2 AM……..

  • sad

    Guys beating on women… those guys deserve the purple headed warrior on their butt cheeks.

  • Lee

    I’m sure after they’re caught they will receive time served and let out on probation.

  • Nicole Ness

    I would like to say that I know the people who were assaulted and their rap sheets are about as long as 1000 miles…I have had restraining orders on these girls before and I also would like to say that I was BRUTALLY assaulted by Jackie at a near by bar where they were found and I filed a police report about it but got NO response what so ever!!! I took pics of what she did to me!!! You can look me up!! My background check is spotless!!!! All I have to say is these people were trying to RUIN an event that night ALMOST POSITIVE THATS WHY THEY WERE OUT and therefore I have to say something….it was my wedding reception!!!!! The bar I had it at knew of them cuz of their rap sheet and added 3 extra security people at my reception. I got married 6/11/11 out of town and then had reception in Rsmt. 6/18/11….I know they thought the reception was 6/11/11 too!!! Don’t like to get involved in this crap but I feel I have a right to voice what these “victims” are capable of. I will talk to the news, I will talk to anyone who wants more information on these 2 “victims” that were assaulted because they have tried to RUIN my husband’s and my relationship and lives for YEARS!!! Why didn’t the news interview us with my injuries from this girl Jackie???!!! I am royally pissed off right now!!!

    • Drew

      I have to agree with you Nicole, anyone who has had any exposure to Rosemount knows how these two can be. I would be willing to bet anything that they didn’t simply just warn the group, but rather, was mouthing off to them in typical Fritz fashion. I used to bounce at one of the bars in the area, and escorted them out on a regular basis due to their out of control behavior, this was about 8 years ago and they are still pulling this crap. These women are born and bred bullies, always have been, always will be. Don’t feel sorry for these two morons, I’m really surprised this hasn’t happened MUCH sooner.

    • Nicol

      Also just to let you know that she didnt even find out about the weddig and what not till this last weekend. That and she doesnt even care about the whole you being together and what not. I think the whole thing is a little crazy since she hasnt had any thing to do with either of you or cared about what goes on with you and your husband. She is happy with her life and the family she has now. I think you should get over all of this it has been years.

    • Nicol

      The so called assault happened at least 5 years or so ago. The victim in this case wants nothing to do wiht this lady or her husband and hasnt for years.

    • JamieinMN

      Wow, you need to calm down. Someone sounds VERY insecure.

    • HOLLIE

      I have known the Fritz girls all my life!!! Those girls have lived a hard life and if anyone knew them they would know that. Stop judging them just beacuse of their lastname. They are good people with BIG HEARTS!!!! I have gone out with them MANY of times and there has been NO DRAMA EVER with them. If anything people act them and its all just beacuse of the lastname. Grow up and get over yourself. Yeah there is two sides to every story and obviously your the one making it seem like this happened to Jackie because of you.

    • Jason Booth


  • captainobvious

    Who has their wedding reception at a bar, unless its closed solely for your reception, you’re a dope your husbands probably been pounding them boxes for years, hahahaha

  • Nicol

    I am going out on a limb here and guessing that the people must have been at your reception then. As for they are well known at the bars i rosemount its because there is really only 2 of them that they go to that and they ahve grown up in that town. I dont care what excuse or reason they had for getting in a fight with them. I am sorry but no man should ever literally stomp on a womans face. If you think that it is ok just because you had issues with them at one point or whatever then you are just as messed up. Sorry your reception got ruined or whatever but either way that guy never should have done that. If i seen some guy do that I would either run them over or grab something and beat them down.

  • Cole

    seriously they do even want anything to do with you or your husband or family. It has been several years let it be why keep going on something that you dont even know who she is anymore. Wow i can see how bad you feel for that to happen to someone when you make comments like you have. Why dont you just stop with trying to keep yourslef involved in there lifes. And your husband attcked them also form what i understand that and they dont even wear high heels. They came out of the house bloddy too. LIke you said they are 2 sides to every story. I think you shoudl just stay to yourself as they have been doig for YEARS now.

  • Toki Windex.

    Ah the suburbs.

  • Juan Choo

    They Must ALL Be Illegals!!!!

  • Jacqueline

    First I would like to start off by saying Nicole Ness you know our issues are so in the past. You sitting around acting like the victim still after all of these years is sad, You and Duane had to change your entire lives cause of My daughter you didn’t want anything to do with her and Duane was a huge part of her life. I haven’t mentioned your names in years I could care less about either one of you. The fights that you and I had you were very much involved. And yes for your info when you and I fought I did get a 5th degree assault you can look that up Princess.. I am sorry that we grew up on the other side of the world and that you were so sheltered. I agree for many of years I only knew one way of dealing with my issues I am not proud of it but it is the truth. In my 32 years of life I have changed. I am not saying I am sorry I am saying I am human and like others I have mistakes I am not able to take back just try to grow and change them which I have. Please just leave me and my family alone we have been very much content without all of the NESS issues. Nicole you commenting on things like this is just opening up sad scares for my daughter and I know you didn’t care in the past but can we please just let it rest…

  • Jason Booth

    hey all who’s knocking jackie..she’s been thru enough so leave her alone..she is a good friend of mine and is a terrific girl so please<no more running of the mouth bout her…

  • Jillion Fritz

    My last name is Fritz so that makes me a ” Fritz Girl” lol.. I guess we have our share of enemies and who doesn’t . This isn’t about who likes who its about finding the guys would attacted my older sister. So if you have nothing good to say or helpful to say about this situation leave or comment to yourself!!
    Please and thank you.

    • ?

      I hang out with the “Fritz Girls” so does that make me a “Fritz Girl”?

    • greedo

      I watched Fritz the cat a few times last week….IM A FRITZ GIRL – -whooohoo

    • Breezy Hemmah

      I am a “Fritz” girl too these girls are my cousins…..there is no excuse for a man to beat on a female like that. No matter what goes on in someone’s past they change life is all about growing and chaging….the fact that NICOLE NESS is saying that, that is a reason for a women to get her ass kicked by a man is low. Who gives a damn about the past the fact is its wrong and NICOLE NESS your worse than the man that did it!!! Your weak and disgusting…wow what has this world come to!

  • Mindy

    Hasnt your mama ever told you to never judge a book by its cover. I guess this just all goes to show you how crule people are. That no one has a freaking heart anymore.

  • Mindy

    Watch the movie The Accused, its based on a true story. Its about a girl named Sarah Tobias who was well known at the local bar and she was drinking and doing drugs when she was attacked by three or four men who raped her on the pin ball machine and no one in the bar helped her when she scream no. Yeah so what if the Fritz Girls have a rap sheet, what happened to Jackie was bruital and uncalled for. Same concept with what happened to Sarah Tobias.

  • Amber

    Hang in there Jackle. Hope for a speedy recovery. Dont listened what heartless people have to say.

  • Herby

    Hmm..seems a big fishy to me. What I don’t understand is how she has no concussion or any concussion symptoms…? I’m no doctor but if you receive that type of blow to your head/jaw you’d think that there would be some sort of concussion symptoms or something..in any case I also find it hard to believe that they only said quiet down, and then have these people “snap” on them..I don’t know it just doesn’t all add up to me. Also..some of these comments seem like they were written by 10 year olds..maybe instea of being out drinking and all that, focus on school and learn how to spell.

    • ??????

      What are you talking about? Who do you think you are. She can’t eat for 6 weeks.. maybe you should leave your comments to yourself. You seem like a weirdo that has no life. The cops have the x rays and pictures too. Let the cops do their job and stay out of it!!!

      • Herby

        I know exactly who I am and that is none of your business..This is America..and you know I’m no scholar but I believe there is something called the 1st amendment, look it up. Freedom of speech, so I believe that I can voice my opinion where it seems fitting. Thanks for your input though! I understand what she may be going through but I’m just wondering why she doesn’t have any concussion symptoms..is that such a harsh question to ask? I’m well aware that the cops have x-rays, but my question was why she has no concussion symptoms when the person “ran” at her and kicked her in the face. Just asking a simple question..

        • Jennifer Schneider

          Hey “DOCTOR” Herby that is the most ignorant thing to say. YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!!! (just using my freedom of speech) Let me get this straight just because she (thankfully) does not have a concussion there is something fishy about getting beat up so bad you are going to loose your bottom teeth. It’s not a hard question it’s a STUPID question. If you fall and don’t break your arm does that mean you did not really fall or it was a fishy fall…….GET A CLUE!!! Maybe you should keep yourself off the posting and go look up what actually causes concussions…because getting hit in the face does not automatically cause a concussion, oh and neither does falling and hitting your head.

  • Nicole Ness

    I never got notice if you were charged with assaulting me Jackie, that seems fishy to me…I went to the police dept. and they took pics of what you did to me…I was not involved, you came up from behind me when I didn’t even see you…this is all very fishy…I don’t have anything against you Jackie, I never have…but this is all really strange….I refuse to be a door mat and I have a right to speak my opinion…

    • porkchoplynn

      MN Courts anyone can look it up

  • Nicole Ness

    I think you went to the media to get disability and that you maybe even know who did this to you, if they did….

    • Jillion

      Why are you so obsessed with my sister?? Your acting like a child. Let the past go and leave her alone. She is serously go through alot right now and you don’t need to be so rude. I wasn’t with her that night Jenny was and she didn’t go to the bar she was walking to the store. Please just leave her alone. I was there when she had surgury. She is not lying.. She is very honest and caring. She told me she has no problem with you or Duane. She just wants everyone to stop talking about her. Just let it go its been years!! What happpened to my sister is serious and scared the crap out of me. I will press charges on you for harrassment Nicole Ness..

    • Jillion

      Nicole, leave my sister alone!! She isn’t lying!! Stop harassing her. Your acting like a child and its none of your business what happened to her. She wants you to leave her alone. JUST STOP!! Let the cops handle this not you.

  • Sarah

    Am I the only the one that thinks Nicole Ness has over spoken her opinion? I believe you stated “I have nothing against you Jackie”… could have fooled me with your constant comments about what happened between you two in the past and your wedding. I’m sorry did I miss read what this story was about? Was this called Poor Nicole Ness? NO! This is about trying to find leads on a horrible man that’s walking around Rosemount who obviously has no respect for women. Let’s stop the oh poor me and my wedding and me me me.. you have spoken your option now leave it alone. If anyone one has any useful information please comment and help find this man. This could have happened to anyone and I am guessing that this guy will do it again. It could happen to your mom, your sister or your daughter. Let’s stop judging and start trying to actually help.

  • Becky Fritz

    This is wrong.. People putting all of this negative stuff about my Daughter she has been through enough in the last 10 days. Nicole you just got married. Why don’t you just get on with your life and leave my daughter alone. No one was there except for family while Jackie was in surgery for 4 long stressful hours. She is only trying to get help to find this person that hurt her. Please for my daughters health stop harassing her and take some of this energy to make your new husband happy..

  • Nicole Ness

    You are right Sara, and this has happened to many different people from this very person, who is a mom, a daughter, a son, a wife, a husband, and a child….this has happened to WAY more people than just me, I don’t believe anything they’ve said about this whole thing! Be sure you know the whole story and that people are being truthful about it before you judge….

  • Nicole Ness

    I haven’t said one word about poor poor me and my wedding except in my 1st comment, I am talking about the fact that I believe there are a lot of lies in this case, I’ve seen these people in action as Drew and MANY other people have over the years and I know there is more to this story and someone is not telling the truth, quit changing the subject and directing this all back at me….think about it, the cops say, its very unusual that this would happen, there are lies here and that is the truth!!
