Franklin Police looking for suspect who grabbed woman in park

Post Date:07/05/2019 2:00 PM

Just after 8:30 this morning, officers were summoned to Franklin’s Aspen Grove Park after a suspect on the walking trail grabbed a woman’s buttocks. The suspect left after the assault, and the victim was not injured. There is no reason to believe that the suspect is still in the immediate area.

Franklin Police are seeking information about the black male suspect. He is approximately 5’10” and 160 pounds, in his late 20s to early 30s, has a beard, and was last seen wearing a brown & white baseball cap, and yellow and gray jogging pants.

Call Franklin Police if you have any information:
