A 15-year-old Mill Creek student said she thought a male friend intended to kiss her when he led her to a secluded location at Duncan Creek Park. Instead, the encounter turned into what police have labeled a sexual assault.
After finishing practice for an extracurricular activity on Aug. 19, the teen texted her father to come pick her up near the football field at the park. The teen was reportedly waiting on a bench with a male classmate when the classmate took her by the hand and led her down a trail into the woods.
"[The teen] stated she thought [the male] was going to kiss her or something and that she went with him," the officer wrote in the report.
However, once the two reached a secluded location, the male allegedly began to disrobe.
"[The teen] emphasized that he took all his clothes off," the report stated.
The teen struggled to get away, but said the male would not loosen his grasp on her arm. Eventually the teen managed to break free and the male reportedly chased her, at one point pushing her to the ground. The teen said she got away from the male again and fled to the parking lot.
The teen informed police she didn't want to tell anyone about the incident, nor did she know how to tell anyone about the incident. The teen's father said he learned of the assault when one of his daughter's friends told him what happened.
The teen's parents advised they intended to contact the school to make them aware of the situation.
The case has been forwarded to detectives for further investigation and is listed as active.
