Man arrested for assaulting women at Bismarck mall

BISMARCK, N.D. — Police have arrested a man in two incidents at a Bismarck mall in which women reported being assaulted.

Authorities say a female shopper in a store at Kirkwood mall on May 20 reported that a strange man grabbed her buttocks, lifted her shirt and tried to put his hand down the back of her pants. Another woman who was shopping at another store the same day reported that a man made an inappropriate comment to her and then slapped her buttocks.

The 25-year-old suspect was arrested Tuesday on disorderly conduct warrants and also for drug paraphernalia possession. He did not immediately appear in court.
