Canterbury Crowd

A crowd gathers at Canterbury Park in 2017.

Shakopee police are investigating a rape reported at Canterbury Park on June 20.

Shakopee Police Capt. Craig Robson said the victim is a 15-year-old girl and there is a suspect involved, but there have been no arrests.

“We’re investigating it as a rape,” he said. “We’re not going to talk about this case because it’s fresh.”

Asked whether it was a “stranger rape,” Robson would not say. He also would not disclose the location of the incident because it’s an open, active investigation.

“It’s not unfounded,” he said. “This is a sensitive area.”

Canterbury Park spokesman Jeff Maday declined to comment, citing the active investigation.
