The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a teenager said she was groped at Emerald Pond Park in the city of Ramsey.

The incident happened about 4 p.m. Monday near the playground area of the park, located on the 6000 block of 142nd Avenue Northwest.


The girl said a man who was there touched her inappropriately. She said the man had been using a metal detector in the park and started talking to her after she asked him about it.

The suspect was described as a white man in his mid-20s who was about 5 feet 7 inches tall and had a medium build. He had a tattoo on his bicep, a light beard and short, messy, dirty blond hair. He was wearing a T-shirt and shorts.

Two vehicles were in the parking lot at the time: a dark sedan and a gray van.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office at 763-427-1212.
