Hunt Continues for Attempted Rape Suspect in Athens

 

The State Botanical Garden is laced with trails, used daily by those who like to walk and hike. On a trail, you can relax and think about little besides what you are seeing around you.

Or could, until the UGA Police on Friday reported an attempted rape of a woman walking on one of the trails. According to police reports, a woman was approached by a man wielding a knife who threatened to rape her. She talked to him and managed to escape him before he could harm her.

The University Police will have someone to talk about the case on Monday, officials said.
