Numerous mainstream media articles have documented the arrest and charging of Nathan Dwayne Jones after his semen, left at a crime scene, was linked to him through a DNA database. Click here for example of coverage.
It is sometimes the role of this blog to fill in small, interesting details which other media leave on the editing room floor. That's just the case here...
First of all, Jones reportedly lives at 3100 Thomas Ave. N., according to jail roster information this blogger posted in a comment on June 9, click here.
Of course, as I mentioned on June 9, that's a VACANT BUILDING.
On the actual criminal complaint, which I now possess, his address is listed as 1705 25th Ave. N., a rental owned by Rasheed Khan of 1455 N. Innsbruck Dr., Fridley, MN. If that name sounds awfully familiar, check out this blog post about Rasheed Khan's joint ownership of the "rapist village" duplex on Emerson Ave. N.
So far, all the media coverage of the charges against Jones appear to be a summaries of details in the criminal complaint. But this blog will give you the unedited and, it must be said, truly awful details which are as follows, extra paragraph breaks added.

On or about May 24, 2012, a Known Adult Woman, fully identified in the police reports, reported that on said date, she was a victim of a sexual assault and burglary in her home located in Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota. According to the Known Adult Woman, while she was sleeping in her bed, she woke up because she could feel somebody grabbing her buttock and pulling her.
She sat up on her bed and immediately noticed a black male within two feet of her saying "Shh, shh." She immediately noticed that this Unknown Male was naked; he had no shirt on and his pants were around his ankles. She also noticed that he had a knife in his left hand and a white towel was partially covering his face. He moved toward her and directed her to "suck it," indicating he wanted her to engage in oral sex by sucking on his penis.
She complied with his demands by sucking on his penis, stopping and gagging, asking him to leave the room, but he walked backwards from her and closed the door and came back to her again. While in her home, the male used the white towel to wipe his face. At one point, she picked up a pair of socks, and spit the semen into the sock.
As she watched him out of the corner of her eye, she saw that he had left his shirt outside her bedroom where he went and and pulled on his pants and his other clothing. Then, he walked toward the kitchen and she could hear the door close, and believed that he had left her home.
Believing that she had locked all of the windows, she went back to check on the windows to make sure they were all closed and locked. At that time, she realized, after opening the drapes that had been closed in her bedroom window, she realized that she had forgotten to shut her bedroom window. She observed that the screen was cut and she immediately pulled the screen inside the house and set it down, so she could close and lock the window.
She observed there was a jack knife lying right before the window sill and the blade was open. She reported this incident to the police. She described the perpetrator as a black male, medium colored black skin, naked, medium build, about 5'8" or 5'9" tall, 160 to 170 pounds, hair in braids and he was in his early to mid-30s.
Minneapolis Police Officers recovered a white towel from the victim's kitchen garbage and submitted it for DNA testing.
