A man is accused of attacking a woman at Shawnee Mission Park this week.
Michael Erler, 31, of Overland Park was booked into the Johnson County jail and appeared in court on Thursday on charges of sexual battery and lewd and lascivious behavior. He later posted a $5,000 bond and was released from jail.
Authorities say a 20-year-old woman was quite shaken up after she said a man approached her vehicle and exposed himself to her. Erler is accused of grabbing the woman's breast and making a sexual advance toward her.
Park police say the woman was sitting in her vehicle in a parking area off the main road. Police were able to get a detailed suspect description and quickly arrest Erler.
This occurred about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday.
Those who enjoy the park say they see security often and hope this was an extremely rare event.
