Cops: Assault suspect tried to collect reward for crime tip.

LOWELL, Mass. (AP) – Prosecutors say a Massachusetts man suspected of assaulting a woman went into a police station to try to collect a reward for offering a tip on the crime. The suspect in a brutal sexual assault of a teen girl walked into the Lowell Police Department yesterday to ask for a reward — but ended up getting arrested, police said. “He was trying to get out in front of the fact that he was going to be seen in the area at the time that it happened,” said Lowell police Capt. Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan’s office says 31-year-old Kevin Suarez was arraigned Monday on charges of assault with intent to rape, and other offenses. When you started looking at some of the videos,” he said, “you say, ‘Hold on a minute.’” Police said the victim, who is 18, told them she was attacked from behind Sunday as she walked on Middlesex Street about 4 a.m., and was then dragged into an alleyway and assaulted.

After several minutes had passed and she had been screaming for help, a bystander attempted to intervene, causing the woman to break free and the man to run off, police said. “The overpowering nature of the assault and the number of actual physical strikes the victim took, being thrown to the ground in the dark by a dumpster,” Crowley said.
