Howard County police have identified the person responsible for striking a woman on a Clarksville pathway March 22.
The parents of a 20-year-old man with a developmental disability brought him to the police station to report that they believed their son may have been involved.
The woman had reported to police that an unknown man jogged up behind her around 7:30 a.m., struck her in the face and apologized as he passed. She did not require medical attention.
After investigation and consultation with the state’s attorney’s office, it was determined that criminal charges would not be filed in this case. Authorities are working with both families to address concerns and ensure proper safety measures are in place.
