Two More Arrests for Slatterly Park Assault
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Rochester police have made two more arrests in connection with an assault on a woman at a city park Sunday night.
A spokesman says 25-year-old Caitlin Bodine of Rochester and 26-year-old Brittney Hoffman of Pine Island were identified as suspects in the attack on an 18-year-old woman, who was punched and kicked after she was dragged out of a car at Slatterly Park. Police say a necklace was also stolen from the victim during the assault, which was recorded on a cellphone video that has been obtained by police.
Investigators say it appears the young woman was targeted because she had begun a relationship with Bodine’s boyfriend. She and Hoffman are expected to face first-degree aggravated robbery, felony assault and other charges.
The first two people arrested in the case, 18-year-old Luis Aguilera and 18-year-old Briannah McKee of Rochester, were formally charged in Olmsted County Court on Monday and had their conditional bail set at $100,000 each.
