The Sioux Falls Police Department and Minnehaha County Sheriff's Office are looking for a convicted sex offender who's suspected of raping a child.
Police say 29-year-old Kristopher Aslesen of Garretson is a semi-truck driver who also has ties to the Sioux Falls and Mitchell areas. A warrant for his arrest was issued Friday, November 16 for two counts of first-degree rape of a victim less than 13-years-old.
