Chautauqua Park

At its height Beatrice’s Chautauqua Park had 19 cottages on the creek, electric service, daily mail delivery, a boarding house, grocery store, several organization’s halls and hosted several famous speakers.

Police say a woman reported that a man jumped out at her while she was walking in Chautauqua Park, sometime Tuesday morning.

Beatrice police chief Bruce Lang said the woman told officers that a man jumped out at her while she was in the park before running away. It's unclear what the man's intent was.

Lang said there were people in the park during the reported incident, but that no one witnessed anything.

There is no description of the suspect at this time, although Lang said the suspect may have been wearing a mask.

Lang said there is no ongoing threat to the public.
