Bemidji police provide update on 'high-priority' sexual assault investigation

BEMIDJI - It's been two months since a police officer responded to the Sanford Bemidji emergency room on the report of a sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl.

In the weeks following that incident, law enforcement agencies have been hard at work to uncover the circumstances that led to such an awful outcome and left the community reeling.

The situation may have sadly gone unnoticed by many if it hadn't been released that 11 undocumented immigrants were also detained during the investigation.

This resulted in the incident garnering both national and statewide attention, with several conservative politicians referencing it as an example of what Minnesota's 8th Congressional Rep. Pete Stauber referred to as "the Biden Administration's recklessly lax border and failing immigration policies."
