CPD investigating two reports of indecency on MKT Trail
COLUMBIA - Columbia police are telling trail users to be on alert after two reports of indecency on the MKT Trail Friday.
CPD said officers and a park ranger went to the MKT Trail between Scott Boulevard and Twin Lakes Trail Head around 12:30 p.m. after receiving an indeceny report. Officers said a female victim was jogging on the trail when a man on a bike rode past her, grabbed her butt and rode away.
CPD said another female victim gave a report at 12:48 p.m. that she was walking on the MKT Trail between Forum Nature Area and the 3M Wetlands Area when a man on a dark-colored bike rode past her, stopped, dropped his pants and exposed himself. The victim said she turned around and ran away from the man, and he followed her on his bike for a little while before stopping.
CPD said the reports are similar to two indecency reports on the Hinkson Creek Trail from July 5.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Columbia Police Department or CrimeStoppers (573) 875-TIPS.
