(ARLINGTON HEIGHTS) Police are searching for a male who attacked a woman while she was jogging Friday night in northwest suburban Arlington Heights.
The woman was jogging about 5:05 p.m. near Valley Lane and Windsor Drive when a male wearing dark clothing ran alongside her, according to a statement from Arlington Heights police.
The male tried to talk to the woman, but when she ignored him he grabbed her by the waist and spun her around, police said.
She struggled with him and was able to break free uninjured and call authorities, police said.
The suspect then ran away, police said. He is described as a Hispanic male, about 35 years old, standing about 6-foot and wearing dark clothing.
Police said this is the third incident in the past 14 months in which a female jogger was attacked in or near Lake Arlington Park. Females were battered about 5:30 a.m. Oct. 11, 2013 and about 6 a.m. Sept. 26, 2013.
Anyone with information on the attacks should contact Arlington Heights police at (847) 368-5343.
