Man Arrested For Soliciting 11-Year-Old Rochester Girl At Park
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Rochester police say witnesses came to the aid of a young girl who was being sexually solicited by a strange man at Silver Lake Park Wednesday.
The 11-year-old girl had just walked off the pedestrian bridge near 7th St NE around 4:00 pm when a man sitting on a bench waved her over. When she went to the bench, the man grabbed her hand and she sat down. Police Capt Casey Moilanen says the man began making “ sexually explicit comments” to her and put his hand on her leg.
Two adults who are familiar with the girl confronted the man and he ran off. They called 911 and chased the man. Officers found him a few blocks away and arrested him.
The man was identified as 31-year-old Danio Dorres of Rochester.
Moilanen says the frightened girl was reunited with her parents.
