St Paul Child Rape Suspect Arraigned
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Bail has been set at $2 million for a St. Paul man accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl.
Forty-seven-year-old Mark Scott Meihofer appeared in Ramsey County District Court Monday where he was ordered to have a competency exam.
Prosecutors say Meihofer approached the girl outside her condo building Thursday evening and took her to a boarding house where he forced her to smoke a substance, bound her with tape and assaulted her.
He's charged with kidnapping and first-degree sexual assault.
