SAVANNAH, GA (February 28, 2015): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Islands Precinct detectives are investigating reports from a teen-aged girl that a male grabbed her arm while she was jogging on a wood-covered walking trail on Wilmington Island, Thursday. But they continue to reconcile inconsistencies in reports they have received on the encounter.
The 15-year-old said the event occurred about 5 p.m. in a trail near the YMCA on Johnny Mercer Boulevard. Another report from a mother and son that a male called to them from the wooded area Wednesday night is being investigated as well. Descriptions of the males in the two incidents widely differ.
