Sexual misconduct is charged

A 41-year-old Minneapolis man, Timothy Wilson Heck, has been charged with criminal sexual conduct in the fifth degree following a May 2 incident at the Dakota County Receiving Center in Hastings.

According to the criminal complaint, a female reported she was taking a bath near the front office and had locked the door for privacy when she entered. While she was taking a bath, someone came into the bathroom, but she didn't know who it was. She called out to let them know someone was in there. She said a male, identified as Heck, pulled back the curtain. She said he "smirked" at her and attempted to grab her inappropriately. She pushed him away and told him to leave. He did leave.

Police spoke to another female individual who said she saw Heck come down the hallway and try to open the bathroom door.

She said that the bathroom door is often locked. She said she unlocked the door for Heck to use the bathroom. A few minutes later, Heck came out of the bathroom. Then, the female came out and looked upset. The female told the second female individual what had happened and they called police.
