LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The city of Las Vegas has closed James Gay Park indefinitely due to recent assaults happening at the park.

Las Vegas Metro police are investigating two separate instances of assault, both taking place Friday at the park near Owens Avenue and B Street. Police say a woman was stabbed at the park around 3 p.m., while a man was hit with a crowbar later that night.

In an effort to protect the families with children who frequent the park, the city manager has deemed the park unsafe, and closed it until further notice.
