Police Ask For Help ID’ing Attempted Rape Suspect

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police are asking the public for help identifying an attempted rape suspect.

Police released surveillance photos of a man they believe attempted to rape a 16-year-old who was returning home on a Metro Transit bus last Friday morning.

The attempted assault happened after the girl exited the bus near 46th Street East and Chicago Avenue South at about 5 a.m.

The man allegedly tackled the girl in an alley and exposed himself before abandoning the area.

Police describe the attacker as an 18- to 25-year-old black male with either a mole or birthmark on his nose. He was wearing a dark knit cap and a puffy down-type jacket.

Anyone with any information on the attack should call police at 612-673-2358.

    Does it seem odd to anyone else that a 16 year-old girl is “returning home” on a Metro transit bus at 5 a.m.?

    1. Blame the victim says:

      What’s your point??

    2. Kevin says:

      I agree…what POS parent would even think about letting their 16 on a bus at 5 am….the parents should be jailed with the rapist.

  2. just sayin says:

    Why doesn’t WCCO ever tell us the race of the suspect? I’m so tired of the socialist PC “journalilsm”.

  6. devel says:

    black ppl will get pised and pull pollitical strings if the report contains racest info like that…..strange but true..

    1. Hmmmm says:

      On the other hand, you could actually read the story:

      “Police describe the attacker as an 18- to 25-year-old black male with either a mole or birthmark on his nose. He was wearing a dark knit cap and a puffy down-type jacket.”

      Or if you’d like, find someone to read it to you.
