Hot Springs police are looking for a male suspect in connection with an alleged sexual assault Sunday near the Hot Springs Creek Greenway Trail, police said in a news release Monday.
At around 3 p.m., officers responded to the area of the Greenway Trail and Golf Links Road in reference to a sexual assault. The victim told police a male suspect had approached her and attempted to force himself onto her, the release said.
