A 20-year-old UW-River Falls male student was arrested last week for an alleged sexual assault of a female acquaintance who was at a party at that man’s apartment.

This incident took place at 1430 Emory Circle. The UW-RF student suspect was put in jail.
In other recent Police Beat news that will appear in the print edition of the Jan. 23 River Falls Journal:
--A 39-year-old local man was accused of stealing $440 from the downtown convenience store/gas station where he worked. The man allegedly tried to reposition the store’s surveillance camera so he could take cash from the till without being spotted. His efforts failed because the camera apparently caught him in the act of reaching up with a broom to flip the camera aside.
--Smoking pizzas left burning inside an oven brought police, fire and ambulance personnel converging on an apartment at 300 River Street. A man there tried to hurt himself and needed immediate medical attention. A woman there had passed out, allegedly from drinking. She was arrested and jailed for allegedly violating her no-drink, court-ordered probation. The fire was extinguished before it caused harm or serious damage.
