AVON- On 06/18/2022 at approximately 9:20 pm, Hendricks County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the report of “Trouble with a Person” that had occurred on the B&O trail north of the Wynbrooke subdivision near 21st St. and Raceway Rd.
The initial report was that a 17-year-old girl was approached while walking alone on the trail by four unidentified males. Investigation indicates that one of the males, who was described as Hispanic and approximately 30 years of age, attempted to engage the girl in conversation and expressed a romantic interest in her.
The girl walked westward with the man for an undetermined period of time, but then turned around to go back eastbound on the trail, from where she had originally come. The man attempted to kiss the girl and she fled on foot. The man then caught up with the girl and held onto her hand in attempt to get her to come back with him on the trail. The girl pulled away from the man and she continued running away from the trail. The man was last seen walking westbound on the trail toward Ronald Reagan Blvd.
