Fargo Police are looking for a man who entered an apartment near the North Dakota State University campus and raped one female student and tried to sexually assault another woman. Lieutenant Joel Vettel says it happened Saturday night at the Bison Arms Apartment complex. Vettel says one of the women, who was naked, ran to a neighbor's apartment and screamed for help. The apartment resident called 911 and officers were on the scene within minutes. Officers established a perimeter, but were not able to find the attacker.
A recent national survey conducted by the American Red Cross shows that the use of social media has positively effected the amount of charitable giving this holiday season. Carrie Carlson-Guest of the Red Cross says the survey shows that it's the messenger, not the medium, that has the biggest impact on potential givers and it's really those personal appeals from friends posting something to Facebook saying "I donated to the Red Cross, will you do the same" that motivates people to give. The survey showed that one out of four people will donate if asked by name on social media and about 70 percent would take action after seeing a friend's post about giving.
