MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Minneapolis police are investigating after a 14-year-old girl reported that she was sexually assaulted while walking home from school near Powderhorn Park in Minneapolis on Tuesday afternoon.

The girl told police a man grabbed her, threw her on the ground and made sexual contact with her near 33rd Street and 16th Avenue South around 3:30 p.m. The girl fought back and screamed, and the suspect eventually fled.

Police offered only a vague description of the suspect, describing him as: "Latino male, 20-21 years of age, 6'0", light build wearing tan jeans, black jacket and black scarf."

Minneapolis police are investigating the case with special attention by the precinct squads.  If you have any information, contact Sgt. Riemenschneider at 612-673-3058.

    A Rare Condition

    Hell on earth, that's how some doctors describe Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa also known as E.B. It's a horrible genetic disease that Nicky Zahorcak was born with. A lot of his skin is raw, the slightest touch can cause blisters that quickly spread. He says, "Right now, all the bandages that you see everywhere even on my sides, they're all raw skin." His mother Silvia says very few people know about this rare condition and she wants to change that.
