Le Sueur County Authorities Seek Public's Help in Locating Sexual-Assault Suspect

Posted: Updated:
LE CENTER, Minn. -

One person is in jail right now, while another is still at-large after a sexual-assault investigation in Le Center.
 
Authorities in Le Sueur County say they need your help in locating that other man.

Last march, authorities were contacted about a sexual assault in the City of Le Center. Both the police department and the Le Sueur County Sheriff's Office began investigating.
 
"The victim in this incident was an adult female, and was sexually assaulted by 2 adult males," said Chief Deputy Dave Tietz of the Le Sueur County Sheriff's Office.
 
Authorities say one of those suspects is Mohamud Abdi. He was later arrested on a warrant in the State of Colorado.
 
"Once he (Abdi) was incarcerated in our facility, the investigation continued," said Tietz. Le Sueur County investigators monitored telephone calls made by Mr. Abdi. And after going through those calls we learned of a another suspect."
 
That suspect is Abdirahman Santur. Officials say he's a 25-year-old man from the City of Faribault who is still at-large.
 
"We do have enough probable cause and evidence to put out this arrest warrant for Mr. Santur--so the both of them were involved in this sexual assault," said Tietz.
 
If you have seen Santur or you know of his whereabouts , you are asked to contact the Le Sueur County Sheriff's Office or your local authorities.
 
Officials say they are currently awaiting test results on forensic evidence in the case from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
