Man Punches Jogger, Throws Her to the Ground

Easton Police

Investigators released this composite sketch of an alleged attacker.

Police in eastern Pennsylvania hope someone recognizes the man who they say assaulted a woman jogging along a popular recreational trail.

Easton Police released a sketch Monday of a suspect in the May 13 assault along the Karl Stirner Arts Trail along the Bushkill Creek in Easton, Pa.

As a 40-year-old woman jogged along the trail around 4:30 in the afternoon, a man in his late teens or early 20s grabbed her from behind, threw her to the ground and punched her, according to investigators.

Police didn’t give a motive for the attack.

The suspect is described as standing about 5-foot-10-inches tall and weighs about 180 to 190 pounds. He has dark spiky hair and was wearing a red shirt, black jeans and carried a black string-style backpack during the attack.

Investigators asked that anyone who might recognize the suspect or saw something the day of the attack to contact Easton Police Det. Snyder at 610-250-6637 or submit an anonymous tip to 610-250-6635.
