Man wielding knife assaults teenage girl

A man with a knife sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl Friday night in Anderson Park in Maumee, police said.

The girl, whose name was being withheld as a victim of a sexual crime, was treated at St. Luke's Hospital.

The assault occurred at about 9:15 p.m. as the victim walked through the park, in the 1300 block of Anderson Street near Michigan Avenue, on her way home. During the assault the man brandished a large butcher knife, police said. He fled eastbound on foot through the Hugo Street side of the park.

The suspect remained at large yesterday.

Police described him as white, in his 30s, with blue eyes and short blond hair, and wearing a dark blue baseball cap, dark blue T-shirt with writing on the front, and dark blue athletic shorts with a light blue stripe on the side.
