Sexual Assault at Occupy New Haven, Suspect Arrested

It's happened again, this time in New Haven, Connecticut:
Police are investigating an alleged sexual assault of a woman at the Occupy New Haven encampment
The alleged assault happened Monday night or Tuesday morning. The woman in question has been taken to a local hospital. This is an early report so there are few details available about the victim or the perpetrator. This comes just as the Mayor of New Haven had set a deadline for Occupy New Haven to vacate the park where they have been camping for five months:
The city has given residents of Occupy New Haven, a collection of dedicated homeless people and activists, until noon Wednesday to leave. In Bridgeport on Wednesday morning, a U.S. District judge will consider a request for an injunction to block the shutdown.
Hopefully the judge will consider the alleged assault when deciding whether or not to let the city put an end to the camp Wednesday. 

Update: An arrest has been made:

Officers arrested England Gamble of Orange Street in New Haven Wednesday for an alleged sexual assault during the early morning hours of Tuesday, or possibly late Monday, at the Occupy New Haven encampment on the Green. Gamble was charged with first-degree sexual assault and first-degree unlawful restraint.
