TOLEDO, OH – The Toledo Police Department (TPD) says it is working several tips to locate a man who sexually assaulted a seventh grader on her way to school Friday. TPD is directing all on duty patrols to local schools when kids are walking back and forth to classes until the attacker is caught. School leaders say the 13-year-old had to walk four more blocks to reach East Broadway Middle School to tell administrators about the attack. Toledo Public Schools (TPS) leaders sent parents a letter about the attack, but say student safety is not the district’s responsibility before kids arrive at school.
