Two indecent assaults reported on South Church Street

Two women walking or running along a area frequented by exercisers on South Church Street reported indecent assaults on separate days last week.

Police responded to the reports, which both took place between 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. on Thursday and Saturday.

In both cases a woman walking or running alone was grabbed by a man who emerged from bushes along the road and ran up behind her, then ran away after the assault.

One assault occurred near Dart Family Park, with the man running off in the direction of Clayton Drive. The other occurred in the vicinity of Grand Old House, between Thompson Drive and Denham Thompson Way, with the man running off toward Denham Thompson.

Neither woman was injured.

  1. I feel that the police need to drive these areas and other areas in unmarked cars. If a person with sinister attitude sees a police car patrolling they will do the obvious thing “Hide”
    We have some men just walking around half naked on a daily basis, exposing private parts “Back and Front” and sprawling out in park benches and on the beach areas in view of visitors and residents.
    Calling for unmarked cars with police to tweak these areas.

  2. There needs to be more feet on the street, Less overpaid people behind desks and more patrol officers. Maybe every RCIPS employees should be required to do some type of foot patrol even if it’s only a few hours a day, in the least they’d all stay in shape.
