Police are searching for a man who they say tried to sexually assault a woman at the Jersey Shore Saturday night.
On Sunday around 11 p.m., Middle Township Police officers were called to the Hideaway Beach Condominium in Goshen, New Jersey for a report of an attempted sexual assault.
A 49-year-old woman told police she was on the beach at the end of Cooks Beach Road when she was grabbed by an unidentified man. The woman claimed the man ripped off her shirt and tried to remove her shorts. She managed to get free however and ran to her vehicle while the man fled the scene.
The suspect is described as a slender man with shoulder length curly or wavy hair standing between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10. Police are also searching for three possible witnesses who may have been in the area at the time of the attack. Investigators suspect the witnesses were working on a small boat that was on a trailer and attached to a pickup truck while the attempted assault was taking place.
If you have any information on the incident, please call the Middle Township Police Department at 609-465-8700.
