Letter to the editor: Park attack

To the editor: On the night of Jan. 16 my 17-year-old granddaughter’s friends were walking her home after dark when she told them to go ahead she wanted to stop at City Park to swing. She was rushed from behind and thrown face first onto the concrete. She smelled alcohol and liquid was thrown on her. A man sat on her back and tried to get a lighter going. She knew she was going to be burned alive. She was able to claw and wriggle free and ran the block home. She did not have alcohol ON HER it must have been his breath. Okay, do some second guessing, just remember she’s a kid.
