It’s always good to see more of Grandview’s residents in the news, but this is not the way to do it.
(From an email sent out by Superintendent Ed O’Reilly on August 8th)
Last evening between the hours of 9:10 PM and 11:00 PM, three incidents were reported to the Grandview police department involving a male adult committing a lewd act of sexual nature in the presence and visibility of people in our community. Those three alleged incidents took place in the general vicinities of Buck Park, Wyman Woods, and the Mckinley tennis courts at the corner of Urlin and Goodale. The Grandview police department is currently working to determine the level of connectivity between the three alleged incidents.
There were at least four cases of men exposing themselves in the Grandview area over the last three months, including an incident where a woman “hit him in the stomach as hard as I could.” It is not clear from the reports if this is one offender or multiple persons, and the area where the incidents have occurred has been generally in the Goodale area, Buck Park twice, but the punch happened at Lincoln Road and West 3rd Avenue.
I never know if the rumors that get passed around about this case are worth writing about (mostly not), but an arrest is supposed to be pending for the Grandview flasher (as of Aug. 13).
