STATEMENT OF PROBABLE CAUSE

Complainant has investigated the facts and circumstances of this offense and believes the following establishes probable cause:

On September 1, 2017 at approximately 9:20pm, a known adult female, hereinafter Victim, was walking in the area of Delaware Street SE and Oak Street SE on the University of Minnesota campus in the City of Minneapolis ,Hennepin County. Victim was approached by an unknown man, later identified through investigation as HABTAMU HAMBISSA AYANA, DOB: 12/1/78, the Defendant. Defendant introduced himself and began complimenting Victim. Defendant then took hold of Victim's hands and told her he was an Information Technology student at the university. Defendant would not let go of Victim's hands. He then began hugging Victim and kissed her on the cheek three times. Victim did not consent to this contact. Victim then told Defendant she had a boyfriend and had to go. At that point, Defendant took Victim's hand and moved it down to the front of his pants immediately over his genitals, placing Victim's hand on the clothing over his genitals. Victim pulled her hand away and walked away from Defendant.

Victim later positively identified Defendant in surveillance video obtained by law enforcement.

Defendant is not presently in custody. Defendant is known to university police due to numerous other reports of Defendant approaching females who do not know him and holding their hands ,hugging them, and kissing them without consent. Based on Defendant's escalating non-consensual behavior and the risk posed to the public, the State respectfully requests this complaint issue by warrant.
