Police reports

-- A 25-year-old Overland Park woman reported Monday that she was raped on March 15, 1992, in a wooded area near North Iowa Street and Lakeview Road. The woman told police she was jogging in the area when a man grabbed her, pulled her into the wooded area and attacked her. A police spokesman said the woman told officers she did not report the incident sooner because she was traumatized by the attack. After receiving counseling, the spokesman said, the woman decided to make a police report.
