Recent Criminal Activity Has Police Monitoring Park In Leander
Updated: Wednesday, March 26 2014, 06:23 PM CDT
Michael Goeloe (pictured), 20, is facing charges after police say he sexually assaulted a minor this weekend. Officers say they found him and a 15-year-old girl in a car at Robin Bledsoe Park in Leander. And they tell us the park is becoming an after-hours hotspot for delinquent teens.
Parents say they're shocked by recent criminal activity.
Viniceo Montesdeoca visits the park about three times a week with his son, Luke.
He says, "Everything is fine here, a lot of people come here, parents and children having fun, everything is fine."
But police says the park is becoming a late night hangout spot for teenagers and young adults.
"Some of the minor issues we're having out there is that we're having kids go out there and spray paint some areas, also we got a facility out there where they would pry the door open or would go there and clog up some of the plumbing out there," says Leander Police Chief Greg Minton.
He wants people to know the vandalism is costing taxpayer money.
"Our park is not a hang out spot, it's there for families to be there during the day," says Chief Minton.
That's why the park shuts down each night between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
With summer quickly approaching, Chief Minton wants parents to watch where their kids go and what's going on in this park.
He says, "If anyone sees anything, sees anything there after hours or at any time that they think is suspicious or unusual, please give us a call so we can respond immediately."
Leander police are patrolling the park throughout the night as well.
