The male approached her and threatened her with a knife and made a demand for her property. The male stole the woman’s cell phone and sexually assaulted her. The suspect then fled the area.

An additional report states that on Monday, December 10, 2018, a woman was sitting on a park bench just east of the tennis courts at 455 Sentinel Road, using her phone, when a male approached her and engaged her in conversation.
