The Sparta Police Department is investigating an assault at Roger’s Park last Friday.
According to Sparta Chief Andrew Milanowski, a woman was walking through the park in the wee hours of the morning, when she was approached from behind by three Hispanic males. The woman was able to fight off her attackers and give police a description of at least two of them.
One is reportedly short and stocky, about 5-feet 4-inches, 160 pounds; and the other is about the same height, but slender in build.
Both were wearing soccer-type shirts, one solid purple, and the other possibly black with green stripes. One was wearing a “Texas” type hat, and one of them had a scar on the right side of his face.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sparta Police Department at 887-8716 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345 or toll-free at 1-866-774-2345.
