We spoke with several people hiking the Perkiomen Trail who say, until now, they have never felt concerned about walking the trail's scenic, and often secluded, pathways.
"It is weird and you really don't have that kind of stuff happening around this area, and I'm kind of like shocked to hear about something like that along this peaceful nice trail," said June Hopkinson of Sumneytown.
"I have been in this area since 1973 and things like that don't really happen around here," said Stephen Berosh of Perkiomenville.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Trooper Brendan Shearn of the Pennsylvania State Police at 610-584-1250.
