Woman Assaulted by High School Students; Police Warning Community of Criminal Scavenger Hunt

Judd Weil-News Director


A Dodge City woman’s quick thinking allowed Dodge City Police Department (DCPD) to track down the driver of a truck filled with high school students who had assaulted her with eggs while she was on a run the evening of May 2.

At approximately 8:20 p.m., DCPD officers were dispatched to a call of a 26-year-old female reporting a battery.

She told officers she had been running in the 400 block of Morgan Blvd. when a red truck pulled over to the side of the road.

She continued running past the truck when she felt an impact to her head and back.

She turned around to see two males running back to the truck. When the truck pulled away, she noticed 4-5 other males in the truck and took down the license plate number.

It was determined the suspects threw eggs at the victim to cause the impacts.

DCPD was able to use the information she provided to locate the driver of the truck, identified as a 17-year-old male.

DCPD stated on their Facebook page, the case will be filled with the Ford County Attorney's Office for the charges of battery and disorderly conduct.

The investigation is still open and active as DCPD tracks down the other individuals involved in this crime.

DCPD added to their press release, "we have received information that some high school students are participating in a scavenger hunt style event where some of the activities involve committing crimes.

"Please keep an eye out for suspicious activity. Parents, please speak with your children about having respect for others and their property so we can avoid any further crimes and potential charges for those who still have a bright future ahead of them.”
