ATLANTA -- We’re now learning more about the frantic moments after an attempted sexual assault in a popular metro-Atlanta park.
Alpharetta police initially reported that a woman called on Tuesday around 11:30 a.m. saying she was attacked while walking her 1-year-old child along a path at Wills Park.
A police report shows the incident began with a simple greeting of “good morning” from the suspect. She replied to the suspect as she pushed her daughter’s stroller on the path. A few minutes later, the victim said she noticed the suspect walking quickly, approaching her from behind. She began to walk faster but so did the suspect. During this time her daughter’s blanket fell off the stroller.
It was at that moment that she tried to pick up the blanket that the suspect grabbed her from behind with a small black knife and placed it to the side of her stomach. The victim described the weapon as a homemade box cutter. She said the suspect then began putting his other hand underneath her clothes.
