JPD: Man sexually assaulted in park

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A trip to Craighead Forest Park ended with a man receiving some unwanted attention.

On Friday afternoon, a 25-year-old man reported a sexual assault to Jonesboro police.

The man claimed he was at the park when an unidentified elderly white male approached him to talk about his vehicle.

While the two talked, the victim claimed the man "leaned closer to him, grabbed his penis, and asked him if he wanted to take a walk into the woods."

The victim moved the man's hand and told him "no," the report stated.

The complainant said the man then got into a black SUV and drove away. He could not provide a description of the SUV or the license plate number.
