URBANA — Champaign County Crime Stoppers needs help finding a woman wanted in an altercation at an Urbana swimming pool last month.
About 11:05 a.m. Sept. 3, officers were called to Crystal Lake Park Family Aquatic Center for a report of an aggravated battery.
Officers learned a woman became agitated when she was not allowed to bring an outside beverage into the facility. She allegedly made threatening comments and used inappropriate language in the presence of other people at the swimming facility.
The woman was asked to leave the property, after which she pushed an employee, threw her stainless-steel cup in the employee’s direction and threatened to fight the employee.
There were several witnesses to the incident, and based on conversation heard before it happened, they said they believed the woman was possibly from the Tuscola area.
She was described as a White female in her late 20s or early 30s, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 175 pounds, with light brown hair and wearing a black swimsuit cover, black sandals and large framed sunglasses with clear stones.
She was seen leaving the property in a bronze SUV, possibly a GMC Acadia or Buick Enclave.
