Sheriff’s detectives say a woman with her 2‐year‐old child in a stroller was jogging along a path in the vicinity of Lake Shore Park.

An unidentified man with a knife jumped out from behind some bushes, grabbed her and sexually assaulted her, authorities said.

After the assault, the man fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The attacker is described as a Caucasian, possibly Hispanic, male in his mid-30s to 40 years old. He is between 6 feet 1 and 6-2 with a tanned complexion. He had dark brown or black close‐cropped hair with a
mustache and neatly trimmed full beard. The beard was cut high on the neck.

He was last seen wearing a black short sleeved T‐shirt with holes and black “work pants,” sheriff’s officials said.
