Park Police officers were dispatched to a report of a sexual assault near Grove 19 in the early hours of Saturday, November 1st. Two women there reported that theyâd been picked up by three men in their late 20s near Columbia Road and were promised a ride to Chinatown. They were instead taken to the park. When they got there, the women fled, but were caught. The men were in the process of attempting to rape them when they were scared off, possibly by sirens in the area, and drove off in an unknown direction. The women used a cell phone to call 911, but were not able to tell the dispatcher where they were located. Park Police and Metro PD officers were searching for them when they called again around 3:30 a.m. and were subsequently found near the grove. USPP Criminal Investigation Branch detectives are investigating.
