Sexual battery, solicitation of a child reported in a Lawrence trailer park
Two sex crimes were reported Saturday in a trailer park on Lawrence’s north side.
Just after 7:30 p.m. Saturday, three officers responded to the 100 block of Arkansas Street for a sex-crime report, according to Lawrence Police Department activity logs.
A number of mobile homes sit within the 100 block of Arkansas Street, directly west of the Sandra J. Shaw Community Health Park.
Lawrence Police Department spokeswoman Kim Murphree said in a written response that an aggravated sexual battery and intimidation of a witness were reported at the scene.
The reported crimes were said to have occurred between Nov. 1 and Saturday, Murphree said. The victim and the suspect are known to each other, she said.
Less than two hours later another officer responded to the 100 block of Arkansas Street for a sex-crime report, activity logs indicate.
The logs indicate only the general location of the reports, and Murphree did not immediately respond to additional questions asking whether the locations of the two reports were the same.
Murphree said for the second incident the indecent solicitation of a child was reported. Again, the reported victim and suspect are known to each other, she said.
The reported solicitation is said to have taken place sometime between June 1 and July 31, Murphree said.
No recent arrests listed in the Douglas County Jail booking logs bear incident report numbers matching the reported sex crimes.
