Massac County Continues Attack Investigation
METROPOLIS -- It's a situation that has people in the Metropolis area worried and has spawned a lot of speculation on social media. A woman was allegedly attacked and robbed along the bike trial at Fort Massac State Park last Friday evening. Police have since increased patrols to help make sure everyone using the park feels safe.
State Conservation Police are at the park nearly around the clock and the Metropolis Police has officers visiting more often as well. But, even with heightened security, law enforcement is still encouraging everyone to continue their outdoor activities.
Runner Brent Williams is a regular at Fort Massac State Park. Typically, his path only takes him through the main areas. But there are other routes tucked away that can be more of a challenge to navigate.
The incident remains under investigation. If you have any information, call the Metropolis Police Department at 618-524-2310.
