2 females report sexual assaults

Two females reported unrelated sexual assaults Thursday, and a Dickinson man has been arrested in connection to one, according to the Dickinson Police Department.

Jacob Palmer, 23, was taken to the Southwest Multi County Correction Center Thursday, said Investigator Amanda McNamee.

Early Thursday morning, a 17-year-old girl went to St. Joseph's Hospital in Dickinson, alleging she had been raped, McNamee said.

The assault allegedly took place at a Dickinson residence, McNamee said. She added the 17-year-old was able to use a rape a kit, which collects evidence.

"We have good physical and medical evidence," McNamee said.

In an unrelated incident, another female, who Investigator Kylan Klauzer said is an adult, reported sexual assault Thursday evening.

No other information on either incident was released Friday and authorities are investigating.
