2 Girls Hospitalized After Man Rams Them With Shopping Cart

Two girls walking yesterday in Polk Gulch were transported to a hospital after they were rammed with a shopping cart by an unknown suspect.

The aggravated assault took place at 8:02am at the corner of Polk and Cedar streets. According to police, the victims, ages 8 and 10, were on their way to  school when a suspect “grabbed” one of them before “shoving a shopping cart into her.”

The suspect, described as a man in his fifties, walked away from the scene and was not arrested. The girls were both taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
