JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WDRB) -- Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore defended the actions of the city's police department after public concerns were raised about why department waited until a week after a second student had been sexually assaulted to notify parents of the recent attacks.
"And their strategy in not coming forward after the first incident is because they had hoped to catch the person," Moore told members of the city council after a concerned parent spoke.
About halfway through Monday's city council meeting, Victoria George addressed the council with questions.
"Why did they wait until a week after the second attack (to notify the public)? Why did my son come home with an unsealed letter containing this information, and why did I have to explain the nature of these attacks to my son without preparation?
"So I was floored, parents in the area were floored. Why didn't they tell us this sooner?" she asked.
The incidents happened in the middle of the day on busy streets. The first was reported on October 5th near Tenth St. and involved a 13-year old. The second happened on Oct. 31 and was reported near Middle Road involving a 17-year old student. Both students told police they were lured into a wooded area by a well-dressed man and then assaulted.
Police released a composite sketch but have yet to make an arrest.
"The pedophile and the attacker at large in question was just blocks on both occasions for my home," George told the council.
George's address prompted Mayor Mike Moore to defend his police department.
"I was even called by a reporter saying 'Mayor we've gotten calls that you told the police department not to issue these comments.' You know there's been enough rumors around this city for the past couple of months and I've about had it with them. I believe in letting my departments do their job."
Moore went on to explain that he doesn't "micro manage" his departments and wants to let the police department "do their job."
"Had I known that these attacks had happened. I would have been more vigilant with my son out in the open," George said.
The Jeffersonville Police Department says it is continuing to track leads related to the investigation but have made no arrests.
