World traveled fast by news and phone that a man exposed himself to one woman and sexually assaulted another midmorning, yesterday at Lake Pine, the Apex Community Park with a 2 mile paved walking/biking/running path around a wildfowl and turtle inhabited lake.
The lake has visitors from dawn until dusk when it closes, people of all cultures and ages, enjoying the really tremendous space of the area. It's a very popular and successful park.
The impact of a sexual assault - the details of which haven't been made known to this writer - could be serious and limit the activities by women and children at the park. We'll have to see.
Here's a local news article from the News & Observer on the event.
