Stark Parks Rangers Continue Investigating Trail Assault

PLAIN TWP., Ohio (WHBC) – Rangers with Stark Parks have a possible suspect in mind in connection with the physical assault of a young woman on the Middle Branch Bike Trail last month.

They are looking for any additional information.

The victim in her mid-20s was riding the section alone just south of Martindale Park when a man made conversation with her, then knocked her to the ground and took her cell phone.

Here’s a suspect description: a white male in huis late to mid 30s and perhaps early 40s, with tattoos on both arms and a little facial hair, wearing a dark sweatsuit and a bandana.
