Police report correction

The Outlook inadvertently published the name of the victim of an assault rather than the suspect in the Police Report. Michelle R. Sitzman was assaulted by an assailant on Oct. 5 on the 100 block of S. Bernhardt Rd. in Laurel. The perpetrator of the crime will be identified in the Outlook when the name becomes available.
