Alleged Sexual Assault
A Lakeville, Minn. man is facing charges for allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl with whom he had a significant relationship. Kenneth Junior Pitchford, Jr., 24, has been charged with three counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree with a dangerous weapon and one count of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree.
The father of a Minneapolis woman who says she was sexually assaulted while taking modeling photos is speaking out. He says the accused photographer from Burnsville lied about what really happened. Court documents say 33-year-old Eric Rutherford contacted the woman on Facebook.
Minneapolis Police are investigating the alleged sexual assaults of two 10-year-old girls, which took place Wednesday morning on the playground at Anderson Elementary School. Joleana Williams, a parent of one of the alleged victims, says the assaults started as a game of chase between two 10-year-girls and three of their male classmates. “It turned into the boys aggressively chasing them. My daughter fell and one of the boys got on top of her,” Williams said.
