The Chicago Police Department confirmed three reports of a man on a bicycle assaulting (grabbing) women at nearby Welles Park earlier today, prompting a safety alert to parents by robocall, email or text. Teachers were urged to calmly inform students to be aware of their surroundings at all times. Students with cell phones were instructed to contact their parents and those who normally walk home were instructed to walk in large groups or wait for a parent. Again, the alert was implemented to ensure the safety of all Waters Elementary students.
