Minneapolis police release sketch of suspect in St. Kate's sexual assault
More than a week later, police are still searching for the suspect.
The Minneapolis police department has released a sketch of the man suspected of sexually assaulting a St. Catherine University student earlier this month.
On November 19, around 7 a.m., the student was walking from her car through Riverside Park when a man who looked to be between 35 and 40 years old approached her. First he wanted money. Then he forced her into a wooded area nearby and sexually assaulted her, police say.
The college sent out a crime alert notifying students of the horrific incident, which included a description of the suspect. But more than a week later, police have not been able to track down the perpetrator.
Here's the sketch of the suspect, believed to be about 5' 5":
