A 19-year-old South Milwaukee girl was able to escape an attempted sexual assault in Grant Park, Tuesday, July 12th, before 9:30 pm. Police are still searching for the suspect.

The victim was walking on a sidewalk away from the main beach and was knocked down from behind. She was able to break free and run away to the road, where she caught the attention of a driver and was taken home. She called the police and described the man as a Hispanic 20 to 30-year-old that was between 6’2″ and 6’4″ and weighed about 350 pounds. He had been wearing red shorts, a dark shirt, and had scabs on his shins.

“We are advising our residents or individuals who frequent the park to be aware of their surroundings,” Chief Wellens said. “Pay attention. If you see something suspicious, immediately contact law enforcement.”
