BENNINGTON - A man wearing a white Halloween mask forced a woman to the ground on Goodall Street on Saturday night, before fleeing the area.
At around 7:53 p.m., a 26-year-old female, whom police did not identify, was approached from behind by a male wearing all black with a white mask as she was exiting her vehicle in her driveway. He forced her to the ground before muttering something that she could not make out. The suspect then fled westward on County Street.
Officers searched the area but were unable to locate anyone matching the description, according to police. Anyone with information regarding the assault is encouraged to contact Officer Jason Burnham of the Bennington Police Department at 802-442-1030.
