A 32-year-old man has pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct in connection to what authorities said was an attempted sexual assault on the Minneapolis Community and Technical College campus in early March.

Asad Abu Mohamed of Bloomington entered his plea Monday in Hennepin County court. Sentencing is scheduled for June 8.

The criminal complaint states Minneapolis police were dispatched to the campus on March 2, where they encountered what the complaint terms a "chaotic scene," as witnesses were comforting a female adult student and MCTC security officers were struggling to detain Mohamed.

According to the complaint, the woman told police Mohamed had crawled into her stall in a women's restroom from an adjacent stall. She said he then covered her mouth and told her he would kill her before ripping out an earing and pulling on her hair. 

The complaint also notes two previous charges of indecent exposure against Mohamed were dismissed due to "mental deficiency," and he had been civilly committed as mentally ill in October 2016.
