Jackson Police Department

At 1:50 a.m. last Saturday, Jackson Police Department officers were on foot patrol near the Pink Garter Plaza when a woman approached them.

She was at The Rose, she told officers, and went to the women’s restroom, where a man followed her in and kissed her without her consent. It was unclear what else happened.

“We are currently investigating who the man might be,” Jackson Police Lt. Roger Schultz said.

The victim was uncomfortable with what happened to her, but did not want do undergo a rape kit exam, police said.

If you have any information about the assault, you’re asked to call police.
