Police seek author of e-mail about three sexual assaults

GAUTIER — Police on Wednesday were warning residents of an e-mail circulating about three alleged sexual assaults in the city that police do not believe occurred.

The e-mail was widely distributed at Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, warning residents to be cautious, police said. Police are asking residents to stop sending the e-mail.

Police, however, are asking for tips to find who might have authored the false report. The e-mail indicated that there had been three sexual assaults in the city in the last week.
