Dallas police issue alert after 2 attacks on women at Kiest Park in central Oak Cliff
Dallas Police are warning residents to be vigilant after two attacks on women in Kiest Park in downtown Oak Cliff.
Police said Friday that the first incident occurred on Wednesday evening. A woman was jogging in the park, on South Hampton Road, and West Kiest Boulevard when a man pushed her to the ground and felt her before running away.
A day later, on Thursday around 8:10 p.m., a woman was sitting in a meadow when a man came up to her from behind and took off her shirt and bra. The woman fled and called the police.
Authorities did not identify a suspect but said the attacker was medium-sized and muscular. He was wearing a black face mask, a dark thermal shirt, and dark sweatpants. The police had no description of his age or race.
Police said people should be aware of their surroundings in the park and avoid walking or running alone after dark, and that they should call 911 if they see anyone who matches the attacker’s description.
Anyone with information about the incidents can call Detective Carlos Cardenas at 214-671-3683 and refer to case numbers 202697-2020 and 202883-2020.
