A 22-year-old woman was found partially clothed and passed out in Greer Park on Saturday morning (Aug. 20) in what Palo Alto police described as a possible sexual assault.
She was found lying in the bushes by passersby near the West Bayshore Road driveway, across from Field 2, at about 7:47 a.m. The passersby called 9-1-1.
The park is bounded by West Bayshore Road and Amarillo and Colorado avenues.
Fire officials described the woman as being in an incoherent state.
Police spokeswoman Lt. Sandra Brown on Thursday confirmed the incident and said that police do not yet know if the sexual contact was consensual or an assault.
Police have interviewed a person of interest, but no arrests have been made. The incident occurred between 11:50 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 19, night and 7 a.m. Saturday morning, she said.
Paramedics took the woman to a hospital, Battalion Chief Niles Broussard said on Monday. Further details, including the woman's condition, are not being released due to the ongoing investigation, Brown said.
