ROCHESTER, Minn. -
The Rape Abuse and Incest National Network reports 8 out of 10 assaults are committed by someone known to the victim. Olmsted County Attorney Mark Ostrem believes stay-at-home orders make people more susceptible to being a victim.
"Sexual assault is certainly one of them, domestic violence is another, and certainly some of those fraud things is a whole other area," Ostrem said. "We just become more vulnerable because we are kind of trapped."
Ostrem believes there has been an uptick in domestics. In the last couple of weeks - he estimates incidents have been up 15 to 20 percent.
