St. Paul Police: Finding Assailant of 5-Year-Old Girl ‘Top Priority’

St. Paul police say finding the assailant of a five-year-old girl is a “top priority.”

Authorities say a school bus driver found the girl crying, with her face bloodied at a bus stop on Monday. 

The drive for a charter school pulled up in St. Paul’s North End around 8:10 Monday morning and was waiting for a student when he saw a girl hiding behind a tree. 

Police say the girl ran towards the bus and the driver called 911. 

The girl apparently had a broken nose and was unable to tell officers what happened. 

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the girl described the suspect a “big older boy” whom she had never seen before .
