The Hays Police Department received a report that a sexual assault occurred Monday near Massey Park, and authorities are seeking information from the public.
An HPD news release issued late Tuesday afternoon said a juvenile female reported she had met a man through social media and agreed to meet with him at the park at 17th and Allen. About 6:15 p.m. Monday, the man physically restrained and sexually assaulted her, then fled, the news release said.
The victim ran from the scene with another female and then called police.
The man was described as a white man about 6 feet tall with a medium/athletic build, short brown hair and beard. He was reportedly wearing shoes, jeans and a dark hoodie. He may have been driving a blue vehicle.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hays Police Department at 785-628-1011.
