  • This is unrelated to the above story but this morning there was a holding at Metro Center due to “police activity at Chinatown” at around 7am. Any info on that?

  • I saw on ABC7 that the church next door had quite a few security cameras. Hopefully they caught some images of the guy and catch him.

  • I don’t think he’s joking about it.

  • Poor guy. 🙁 I hope they catch the monster who did this.

  • How awful. Sending good thoughts to the survivor. It takes such courage to come forward and report these crimes to law enforcement. I hope he gets the treatment and support he needs, and I hope MPD can catch the despicable excuse for a human who did this.

  • I know in the grand scheme this isn’t the most important point, but was the victim or the suspect the one who asked for directions?

  • Ugh, I hate seeing stories like this! Hope they catch this animal.

  • This is absolutely horrendous. Steal my money, my phone, anything…just don’t take take my dignity, health or sanity. I feel just awful for sexual assault victims.

  • This criminal is one of the prime reasons I am pro death penalty. There is no excuse here and no reason to forgive, and no point in putting him in prison where he will do this again and again to others.
