Arrest in Riverside Park Sexual Assault

On November 19, a Saint Catherine's University student sexually assault in Riverside Park on the West Bank.  A suspect description was obtained and a composite sketch was developed and distributed to the media.

This past Tuesday, a man named Louis Richard Oliver was arrested near Region's Hospital in St. Paul, after having been reported "approaching females" near their parking lot.  He matched the sketch from the victim's description, and was interviewed by Minneapolis police.  He has been charged with the sexual assault on the 19th.

This is good news for the Riverside Park area, and I hope it will bring some closure to the victim.
