On Wednesday, June 12, 2019, the City was alerted to the placement of several stiff cords stretched across a recently improved bike and hiking path at Miantonomi Park.

City staff responded to the scene and removed multiple cords observed to have been placed at various heights, from ankle to chest, across a trail that begins at the Bike Newport facility on Sunset Boulevard. 

The cords appear to have placed with intent to harm and police are currently investigating. Anyone with additional information on this incident or on the discovery of any new such hazards is asked to call (401) 847-1306
