CINCINNATI, OH -A man allegedly lured a child into an Evanston apartment complex laundry room Sunday and tried to sexually assault her. It happened in the 3100 block of Durrell Avenue. Neighbors said they heard some kind of commotion inside their apartment complex laundry room Sunday afternoon and, moments later, a young mother chasing a man down the street with knives in her hand. According to police records, 28-year-old Terry Johnson was charged with attempted rape for the incident. Neighbor Carolyn Childers said her granddaughter was playing with a group of young girls when Johnson asked one of the girls for her name. When she told him, Johnson said her mother was looking for her. Neighbors said he then took the girl into the laundry room and allegedly assaulted her. "Her shoes are still in the laundry mat where he lifted her up out of her shoes," said Childers

(CNN) - Student loan debt is having a big impact on the housing market.  It's preventing millions of millennials and Gen Xers from buying their first homes. Student loan debt has caused an 8 percent drop in home purchases among Americans ages 20 to 39, according to housing research firm John Burns Real Estate Consulting. That represents an estimated $83 billion loss for the real estate industry. The total outstanding student loan debt now stands at $1.1 trillion. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York states the average debt for a graduate under the age of 30 is $21,000.
