Umm, I somehow missed that MPD had issued an alert (did they?) about a juvenile female being grabbed and sexually assaulted in our area. Anyway, a suspect has been arrested before we even knew it happened. Awesome if the cops picked him up right away. But WOW, this young woman was grabbed and sexually assaulted by a stranger. I'm hoping that the only reason we didn't hear about it was that they arrested him very quickly. Otherwise, WTF? I hope this young woman is ok. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
