Girl feels threatened while out walking; male suspect found hiding in bushes


A 22-year-old local man was picked up in the Greenwood Cemetery and cited for disorderly conduct and drug paraphernalia possession late Sunday night. The man was believed to be the suspect who frightened a 16-year-old girl who was walking her two dogs at the Greenwood Elementary School playground. The girl said he came close and stared at her, then chased her as she ran off with her dogs and called 911 on her cell phone.
