On July 25 officers from the Littleton Police Department responded to the Mary Carter Greenway on a report of a possible sexual assault. The incident occurred in South Platte Park near Reynolds Landing. A female victim was walking alone in a wooded area with her dog along the river when the suspect grabbed her and pulled her off the trail. The victim was able to free herself and escaped. The victim was transported to a hospital for evaluation. With the assistance of several witnesses, the suspect was apprehended a short time later by patrol officers responding to the call. There is no danger to the community and the Mary Carter Greenway continues to be a safe area. The investigation is still ongoing to determine which criminal charges will be filed.
