SHOSHONE CO., Idaho – A 34-year-old woman was reportedly battered by an unknown male somewhere between Moon Gulch and the City of Kellogg Thursday, the Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
SCSO was notified of the battery along the Rails to Trails around 9:15 p.m.
The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident as an attempted robbery in addition to a battery. There is no suspect description at this time.
In a release, SCSO said “To clear up any rumors, no other ‘attacks’ on the Rails to Trails have recently been reported to any of our local law enforcement agencies.’”
SCSO said several transients move through the area at this time of year as they travel the corridor of Interstate 90.
Deputies will be conducting regular patrols on and around the trail throughout the summer, but SCSO urges citizens to be alert and report any suspicious activity along the trail.
