OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. — Police are on the lookout for a  suspect after a woman reported she was assaulted Monday evening.

It happened just before 6:30 p.m. at Hemlock Crossings Park at 8115 West Olive Road in Ottawa County.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office said a woman reported she was assaulted on one of the trails in the park. She said she was near the river about 1/4 mile into the trails taking a walk into the woods prior to the attack. The victim claims she was sitting on a bench when a male with dark brown hair, wearing a gray hoodie grabbed her from behind.

The suspect reportedly held a knife to her neck and told her to be quiet. The victim was able to fight him off before he took off through the trails towards the parking lot.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office or Silent Observer.
