    NARRATIVE

    Officers of the Grand Forks Police Department responded to an apartment building in the 3400blk of 13th Ave. North, to a report of a male subject who had entered an apartment through the sliding glass door, and demanded money from the occupants of the apartment. The suspect then sexually assaulted both of the occupants of the apartment and left the area in an unknown manner.

    The suspect is described as follows:
    · Black male, early 20’s in age
    · About 6’1” tall, weighing between 200-230 pounds; described as heavy set
    · Black hair
    · Wearing a black jacket, dark colored shirt and black pants

    The suspect had a tattoo on the back of his right hand, which looked like cursive writing. He also had a tattoo on the front and right side of his abdomen; we do not have a description of this tattoo. The suspect was also in possession of a weapon.
