A refugee, admitted in September by the Obama administration, waited nearly three months before raping a woman on a public bus as her daughter slept. According to the criminal complaint the rapist refugee, Mohamed Harir Ayanle, 22, entered Minnesota on September 22nd from Somalia.
“According to the court complaint, the Crookston Police Department were dispatched to 2200 University Avenue – the location of the Crookston Inn & Convention Center – on a report of criminal sexual conduct on a Jefferson Lines bus traveling from Minneapolis to Grand Forks,” The Times reported:
The victim told dispatch that another passenger on the bus threatened her and made her have sex with him. She said that Ayanle said he “had something,” which she believed to be a knife though she never saw a knife, and that was the reason she went with him.
The victim said Ayanle first approached her when she was sitting with her daughter and invited her to come watch a movie with him in the back of the bus when her daughter fell asleep shortly after a stop in Bemidji. Once she went to the back of the bus, the victim said Ayanle forcibly removed her clothes and raped her.
Ayanle told authorities that the pair had consensual intercourse and denied threatening the victim.
