MPD stresses park safety after two arrested at Moody Park

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee police are sending a stern message after an incident at a north side park. 

Assistant Chief Michael Brunson says police officers had rocks and food thrown at them last night at Moody Park near 22nd and Burleigh. 

Two people were arrested. Moody Park hosted the Safe Summer Kickoff celebration on Friday. 

Police are working with partners like the Children's Outing Association and the Salvation Army's Chaplains to make the park safe for kids. 

"When called upon, our chaplains will be present in the park to be a positive, prayerful, peaceful presence, and we will do what we can to support this neighborhood," Pastor Alexis Twito with the Salvation Army Chaplain Program said. 

"Our goal is not to make arrests. But we will do that if individuals engage in the type of activities that we saw last night and that we saw over the last few weeks here at this park." 

No one was hurt in Thursday night's incident.
