CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department officers stepped up patrols in every local park after they say a woman was assaulted at Freedom Park on Tuesday morning. They're also issuing a warning for people who frequent that park. A digital billboard is posted at the entrance that states, "If you see something, say something. Report suspicious activity." People packed Freedom Park 24 hours after the attack, but residents still seemed rattled about what happened. "It definitely makes you feel a little more cautious," Charlotte resident Thien Lieng said. CMPD said a woman in her 50s was attacked near the entrance to Freedom Park around 9 a.m Tuesday. They said a man came up from behind, but the woman managed to get away and called 911. She received a few cuts and bruises but is expected to be OK. The suspect is described as a black man, medium build, between 30 and 40 years old with medium skin tone. If you have any information about this case, call police.
