Trial date set in Fargo parking ramp assault

A Jan. 19 trial date has been set for a man accused of a sexual assault in a parking ramp at Fargo’s Sanford Medical Center.

Richard Dwayne Perry, who was 20 when charges were filed earlier this year, has pleaded not guilty in Cass County District Court to charges of gross sexual imposition and aggravated assault in connection with an Aug. 10 incident.

According to police, a 30-year-old woman was choked from behind as she was walking down the stairs in an employee ramp south of the hospital. The man choking her knocked them both down the stairs, pinned her down by her neck and fondled her, the alleged victim told police.
