The good news: There’s apparently no serial rapist in Saint Paul.
The bad news: It’s two different guys.
Margaret Martin’s Minneapolis St.Paul Crimewatch blog has the story:
Forensic DNA evidence from the two rapes that occurred early this month on Payne Avenue in St. Paul reveals that the rapes were committed by two different suspects…It sounds as though even the police are surprised to learn this. The method and manner of the attacks were very similar, as well as the suspect descriptions. Unfortunately, this means that there are not one, but two violent rapists on the loose on the East Side of St. Paul. You can read the St. Paul PD’s press release here.
It’d be such a shame if either of the perps were to run into a “victim” who was armed, wouldn’t it?
