Police arrest 3 teens in 3 sexual assaults

MINNEAPOLIS – Police have arrested three teenage boys for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in front of her two children and then assaulting two teenage girls in Minneapolis.

Police say a 45-year-old woman was robbed and sexually assaulted Wednesday night in Powderhorn Park, while she was cross-country skiing with her 10-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter.

Police followed footprints in the snow to a garage, where they interrupted the assault of 16- and 18-year-old girls.

Three suspects – ages 14, 15 and 16 – were arrested. Police recovered a handgun that they say was used in both attacks.

Sgt. William Palmer says authorities are looking for two other boys present during the park assault.
