A peaceful pastoral walk turns to sheer terror.
A 56-year-old lady went a-strolling through Moody Park in Fairview Heights yesterday morning and we bet she was enjoying it!

Until events took a dark and sinister turn. 

Two youths aged around 14 and cleverly disguised in t-shirts and shorts ran up to her, she reports, striking her firmly on her buttocks.

The perps then darted off like cowards into the woods.

The story in the Belleville News-Democrat refers to the act as "battery," and says anyone with tips should call the police at (618) 489-2100.
