NOW: “It could’ve been a lot worse:“ Victim speaks out after man exposes himself in park, grabs her

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Police say a man exposed himself in a Milwaukee park and grabbed a woman. That woman is now speaking out.

"It could've been a lot worse."

Rebecca Borowski says she was walking home from work Wednesday evening a little after 7 p.m. when she decided to stop by Cass Park.

She says she was sitting on a swing when she felt a man just a couple feet away from her.

"He spooked me so I said something to him like 'can I help you?' cause it scared me and that's when I realized he was masturbating."

Borowski says that's when the man grabbed her.

"I said get away from me, he grabbed my legs as if to pull me off of the swing. I screamed I was going to call the cops and luckily he let me go and started taking off towards Brady street and Marshall."

She reported it to police and now she wants to get the word out so it doesn't happen to someone else.

"I wasn't even really thinking about myself in that situation. It's just that there's a school right there, and it's a public park. This could've happened to anybody."

Milwaukee Police confirm that their investigation remains ongoing. Borkowski wasn't able to get a good look at the suspect but police continue their search.
