Police Investigate Playground Incident in Guttenberg

GUTTENBERG, Iowa —School officials are taking extra supervision measures after an incident on the playground yesterday at Clayton Ridge Elementary School. Superintendent Allan Nelson says a young girl told teachers she was playing on the playground when a ball went off the playground. She says when she reached under the fence to grab the ball from some bushes a man grabbed her hand.

Police are still trying to sort out the student's report and were unavailable to comment. School officials referred any requests for a suspect description to the police department as well.

Nearby St. Mary's Catholic school in Guttenberg is also taking extra precautions today. The school is a few blocks from Clayton Ridge.
