MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police say they arrested a man who allegedly tried to rape a 16-year-old girl on a Metro Transit bus.

According to Minneapolis Police, a man identified as Dominique Darrough was arrested Sunday near the light rail station at East 46th Street. Metro Transit Police responded to the area on the report of a “criminal sexual conduct involving inappropriate language” with a woman. Darrough was located and apprehended trying to board a nearby bus.

In an previous incident on Friday, a 16-year-old told police that Darrough followed her off a bus in south Minneapolis, tackled her in an alley and exposed himself before abandoning the area.

Darrough now faces charges of two counts of felony attempted sexual conduct in connection to Friday’s incident. He was also charged with fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct, a gross misdemeanor, in connection to Sunday’s incident.
