Woman, 28, raped while walking bike path at Lake Elkhorn EAST COLUMBIA

May 25, 1993

A 28-year-old woman was raped yesterday as she walked the bike path at Lake Elkhorn in East Columbia, county police said.

Police said the woman was walking along the lake's path in the Village of Owen Brown around 11 a.m. when she was attacked by a white man, believed to be 18 years old. The assailant was about 5-foot-9 with shoulder length black hair and dark clothing, police said.

Columbia's 60 miles of pathways have been the scene of crimes in the past. In 1988, several students reported they were victims of rape and indecent exposure as they walked along the Lake Elkhorn path and another pathway also in Owen Brown.
