Police have already arrested the assailant, Burnian Bedford, 55, a man known to spend a lot of time close to the library.
According to the police report, Bedford entered the area Tuesday where the woman works and greeted her before the attack. It is because of this detail that the researchers believe that the man and the woman had seen each other before, although they have not confirmed it.
