On 6 Jul. 07, a 16 year old female was en route to school when she was attacked from behind and knocked to the ground by an unknown offender. The victim fought with her attacker and screamed for help as he repeatedly struck her head on the ground and touched her in a sexual manner. The offender released the victim and ran when an onlooker approached to help.

The victim was able to flag down Officers Ryan & Franklin and give them description of the offender. Officers Anderson & Straka were in the area and observed the offender a short distance away attempting to flee the scene.

All of the officers were able to apprehend the offender and place him under arrest. Due to the officers dedication and quick response, an offender was charged with Attempt Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault.

Thanks for job well done. Stay Safe.
