Powderhorn neighbors to rally in the park

by Shannon Lee
Residents who live near Powderhorn Park will meet in its northeast corner Wednesday evening for a "Reclaim the Park" rally.
Community leaders and authorities plan to raise awareness and discuss ways to prevent violent crime from occurring in the park, Fox 9 reported.
The vigil will be held one week after a 45-year-old woman said she was sexually assaulted at gunpoint by four teenage boys while she was cross-country skiing with her two children. Police said the teens fled from the park and were found sexually assaulting two other girls in their garage shortly after.
Residents living in the area have reported at least two other serious crimes in November. Police told Kare 11 that a man exposed himself to a woman and tried to grab her Saturday night in her apartment one block from the park.
The rally will also raise money for a 12-year-old girl who doctors said will most likely be paralyzed for life after she was accidentally shot two blocks away from the park on Nov. 12.
