Police Blotter: Sexual Assault of a Minor and Car Burglaries in Shopping Plaza Parking Lot


Boise Police say they teamed up with federal agents to arrest a Nampa man and charge him with a violent sexual assault. And they say they need the public's help to determine if there were more victims.

The case was reported to Boise Police in late October as the victim was receiving medical treatment for injuries suffered during the alleged attack which reportedly occurred at a Boise motel. Detectives with the Boise Police Special Victims Unit investigated the crime with the assistance of the U.S. Marshal's Service and staff at the FACES Ada County Family Justice Center. 

The suspect was arrested near his home in Nampa Nov. 24. 20-year-old Mehmed Halilovic of Nampa is charged with a felony count of lewd conduct with a minor. He's being held at the Canyon County Jail on $500,000 bond where he awaits extradition to Ada County.

Detectives are asking anyone with information regarding the suspect to contact Boise Police at 208-377-6790.
