St. Paul: Somalis don't like to report crime - even rape

Anthony Lonetree:

The video shows what most witnesses in a St. Paul apartment building apparently didn't tell.

A man beat a woman, removed his pants and sexually assaulted her in a hall, and five to 10 people saw at least part of the attack but did nothing to intervene or help, according to investigators and court documents.

It was only after police were summoned on a report of two drunk people lying in the hall that they learned there had been a rape. Rage Ibrahim, 25, of St. Paul, was charged Thursday with first-degree and third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He is in Ramsey County jail.

The criminal complaint filed in Ramsey County District Court said the surveillance video showed the woman lying in the hall as early as 1:20 a.m. Tuesday. Police weren't dispatched until almost 90 minutes later.

Residents on the second floor of Afton View Apartments weren't talking much Thursday afternoon. One man wouldn't come to his door. A young woman, with children surrounding her, said: "I don't know anything."

Though the building's resident manager wouldn't provide demographic breakdowns, the tenant list in the entryway is dominated by Somali surnames -- a segment of St. Paul's population that police say is often reluctant to report crimes.

That reluctance is of such concern to police officials that Chief John Harrington has been meeting monthly with Somali elders to encourage community cooperation in criminal matters, police spokesman Tom Walsh said Thursday.

Through Wednesday night, the building in the 300 block of Winthrop Street had generated 63 police incident reports this year, with 19 involving various types of disturbances and 11 being 911 hangup calls.

Tuesday's rape was the first such offense at the building this year, reports show.

According to the complaint, officers found Ibrahim and the woman lying in the hall. Her clothes had been pushed above her waist. He wasn't wearing pants or underwear.

The woman told officers that she didn't know Ibrahim and that he had drugged her and raped her. She was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

Officers overheard the woman say she "just wanted to die," the complaint said.

Since he is being so cooperative, how about putting him in the back of a truck, driving him to a hospital in Tijuana, dumping him at that emergency room door and letting Mexican taxpayers foot the bill for his care?

In this distress he was received into the house of Mr. Waldron, where he lay concealed for some time. When the place of his retreat was at length discovered, he took refuge in Flanders, whore he died after a mbt trainers few months' residence, in the summer of 1791.Under the hospitable roof of this worthy and amiable man, Whalley resumed the care of Jonson ; but want of books, and, perhaps, of sufficient composure of mind, rendered his attcmpte ineffectual, and the manuscript was finally abandoned to his friend, who, in the year 1792, coach outlet store online commenced the publication of it in numbers. The success apparently fell short of the expectations of the editor, as the work was not continued beyond the second number.Mr. Waldron neither possessed, nor pretended to be possessed of, scholastic learning; but he was laborious, accurate, conversant with the stage, and imbued with a rational love of the ancient drama, which he had studied coach bags outlet with success. He appears to have collated Whalley's copy with the early editions ; and, on attentively retracing his steps, previously to the arrangement of the text for the present publication, I found much to approve in the caution andI Whalley'« text was that of the booksellers' edition, five finger shoes in Svo. This had been in Theobald's band«, and an incidental remark by him, of no moment whatever, here and there appeared in Ule margin.judgment with which he had uniformly proceeded. His friendship for Whalley, however, has led him to form far too high an estimate of that gentleman's qualifications ; and beyond the revision which I have just mentioned, he seems to have contemplated no alteration of the papers left in his hands.Many years had elapsed since the failure, last mentioned, when the republication coach outlet coupon of Joneon w»s proposed to me by Mr. George Nicol, to whom Whalley'e corrected copy had been consigned by Mr. Waldron. I was well aware of the labor and difficulty of the task ; but my objections were overcome by the encouragement of my friend, and I undertook the edition, confident that I was not about to coach purses outlet encumber the public with a superfluous work, for Jonson had now been long out of the bookseller's hands. One motive there yet was, which had some influence on my determination — a desire, though late, to render justice to the moral character of the author, and rescue him from the calumnies of his inveterate persecutors. My mind had been prejudiced at an early period by the commentators on our old dramas, and I verily believed, as they repeatedly assured me, that " tho great mbt shoes clearance object of Jonson's life was the persecution of Shakspeare ; " nor was it until I became acquainted with the dates of his respective performances that I ventured to question the accuracy of the critics, or to entertain a suspicion that they were actuated by unworthy motives, and could only be relieved 5 finger shoes from the charge of wanton malevolence by the plea of incorrigible folly.Previously to the arrangement of the text, it became necessary to collate the old editions. In the execution of this part of the work, the mode adopted in the revision of Maesinger was carefully followed.
