U student sexually assaulted in Dinkytown

A woman reported that she was driven to an unknown location and sexually assaulted.

A University of Minnesota student was sexually assaulted early Saturday morning in Dinkytown.

The student had left a friend’s apartment when she was either forced or willingly got into a vehicle at about 2 a.m. near the intersection of 5th Street Southeast and 14th Avenue Southeast, according to a crime alert sent to the University community Monday.

The suspect drove her to an unknown location and sexually assaulted her, the alert from University police Chief Greg Hestness said.

Minneapolis police are investigating the case and will release more information as they learn more about it, Public Information Officer John Elder said.

The most recent alert University police sent for a sexual crime came last Monday when three people — including two University students — were molested in separate incidents, all in the Prospect Park neighborhood, according to the crime alert sent later that day.
