    If the RNC Child Sexual Assault Unit is involved and I am assuming that the victim was a minor. This is very alarming crime regardless of the age but if this victim was a minor it is very scary as many schools participate in field trips to the Fluvarium and its walking trails. I think schools should cancel any trips to this area until this criminal is caught.
