(Watford City, ND) — A man accused of trying to sexually assault two women in Watford City is in custody. Earlier this month, a female taxi driver reported that she arrived to give a man a ride when he pulled a knife and tried to force himself on her. She fought the man off, and a second attempted sexual assault was reported a short time later at a nearby house. The second woman was also able to fight off her attacker, and a police investigation identified Dylan Lobato as a suspect in the attempted assaults. He’s facing multiple criminal charges, including sexual assault, terrorizing, and burglary.
