Dear Red Brick Town,

Hi there – I’m a local Old Town resident and thought I’d contact you to help spread word about a sexual assault on the Mt. Vernon Trail. I’ve just met with police and filed a report (the victim did not want to file herself, but I witnessed the assault and called to report anyway), but was wondering if you could help put the word out, as I know your site reaches a wide audience. I’m not sure if this is something you do, but thought I’d contact you in any case.

I witnessed an assault of another women jogging just behind the old Gen On plant, at around 3:45pm Thursday, October 15th. She was groped by a male who fled on bicycle.

He was a young, 18-25 year old Hispanic male, medium-short black hair, with a red t-shirt and a large black Nike-swoosh in the center of the shirt.

I’d be happy to communicate with you directly, but would appreciate if my own name/info would be anonymous. Many thanks for your help!
