Kennebunkport Conservation Trust urges caution after reported assault
KENNEBUNKPORT (WGME) -- The Kennebunkport Conservation Trust is urging visitors to take safety precautions after a reported assault and theft on one of its trails.
Officials said the incident happened on Gravelly Brook Road near the head of Jeremy's trail around noon last Wednesday.
"We feel violated," said Leia Lowery, director of education. "It's a little bit disconcerting."
Lowery said footage from their game cameras has been turned over to police.
The group shared the news on its Facebook page to notify other visitors.
Lowery said volunteers check the trails every day, but guests should also take common sense precautions, like being aware of their surroundings and using a buddy system.
"There were some women concerned about walking on the trails and we're trying to set up a walking group for them, so we can connect all of them and they can walk together," Lowery said. "So strength in numbers."
Kennebunkport police will only say they're investigating, but don't believe there's any danger to the public.
