ALPA's response to media coverage of the August 5th attack in Asylum Lake Preserve

In view of the Gazette's article concerning the ALPA Board of Directors and myself as President are issuing the following: The attack occurred in a very remote section of the Preserve. It is a good practice to travel the more populated trails. Walk with a friend, and be aware of your surroundings. This is an incident that does not happen often in the Preserve and it is still a safe place to walk and enjoy nature. Regarding the attack that occurred last fall in the Preserve the Gazette failed to publish a follow up to mention that the individual who commited the crime was caught, arrested and prosecuted! Plese make sure that your cell phone contains the WMU Police Department number which is 269-387-5555 or you can dial 911 for an emergency.
