A Fridley man cleared in a separate sex-assault case Wednesday faces a new criminal charge for burglary that was filed Friday.
Ahmed Hassan Sule is in custody on a single count of first-degree burglary as detailed in a criminal complaint filed Friday (), said Assistant Anoka County Attorney Wade A. Kish.
According to the complaint, Sule broke into a residence in the 6700 block of Washington Street NE, fleeing when a woman who lived there awoke and began screaming. A wallet and two cell phones were missing and the woman's purse overturned, the complaint said, and the woman later picked Sule out of a lineup.
The new charge follows dismissal of a separate case Wednesday against Sule that was the subject of great community concern last fall (). Sule faced charges in relation to a Sept. 19, 2010, residential forced-entry and sexual assault on an 84-year-old Fridley man in the 6800 block of Seventh Street NE.
