Wayland Police Search for Suspects Accused of Sexually Assaulting a Woman on Nature Trail
The Wayland Police Department is asking for the public's help identifying two men accused of sexually assaulting a woman Thursday morning.
According to Fox 17, the assault occurred Thursday around 10:30a.m near Elm St. on Rabbit River Nature Trail.
A woman was out walking when two men approached her and assaulted her.
One suspect is described as a white male, mid-to-late 20s, approximately 5'10", with medium length dark hair. He was clean shaven and wearing a brown coat and blue jeans.
The other suspect is described as a white male, mid-to-late 20s, shorter than the other suspect, so possibly 5'6" to 5'9", with short black hair, and a larger waist that stuck out slightly over his belt. He was clean shaven and wearing blue jeans and a plaid blue and black coat.
The suspects were last seen running north toward Rabbit River away from Elm Street.
Police say the woman was able to make it home and then reported the incident to authorities, Fox 17 reports.
Michigan State Police, the Allegan County Sheriff's Office, and Gun Lake Tribal Police are also involved with the investigation.
Wayland Police Chief Mark Garnsey said in a press conference Friday,
You may not have been in there that day. But, if you were walking through there, even days or a week before, and those descriptions appear to be similar and you may know a vehicle parked in that lot or something, please come forward and contact the Wayland Police Department.
