Bismarck girl raped outside of elementary school
BISMARCK, N.D. - A 15-year-old girl was raped outside Rita Murphy Elementary School.
The girl was on her way home from playing basketball at the school on Saturday evening, when a man came up behind her and forced her into the bushes beside the school, according to the Bismarck Police Department.
She was sexually assaulted, and the man ran when a car approached, Lt. Dan Donlin said.
The girl described the man as a blond, white man about 30 years old with a goatee. She said he has a medium build and is about 6 foot 2 inches tall. At the time of the attack, he was wearing a black, hooded jacket.
The assault occurred between 7 and 8 p.m. on the east side of the building. The suspect fled south from the school at 611 N. 31st St.
The girl returned home and was taken to Medcenter One by her mother. Police went to the hospital at 9:40.
The school district will cooperate with police, Bismarck Superintendent Paul Johnson said Monday. The elementary schools do not have video cameras outside, like middle or high schools do.
The police do not have a suspect.
