Woman reports attack on Slippery Elm Trail

BOWLING GREEN Wood County sheriff s deputies and Wood County Park District rangers are investigating a report that a woman was assaulted while jogging on the Slippery Elm Trail south of Bowling Green.

Detective Sgt. Terry James said the woman told investigators a man grabbed and assaulted her between 4 and 6 p.m. Sunday on the hiking-biking trail between West Gypsy Lane Road and Portage Road. He is asking anyone with information to contact the sheriff s office or Wood County Crime Stoppers, 1-800-54-CRIME.

Park District Director Neil Munger said incidents on the trail are extremely rare, though park officials always have and always will recommend users of the trail go with a friend.
