The Stevens Point Police are investigating a suspicious incident which occurred Sunday, March 3 at approximately 3:00PM.
As a juvenile female was jogging on Reserve Street near Maria Drive she was approached by a male asking for directions. The male reportedly grabbed the female’s arm and attempt to pull her toward his vehicle. The girl was able to pull her arm away from the male and run away.
