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 NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit.
