A man attacked and sexually assaulted a woman who was running on a trail in Amity Township over the weekend, according to police.
A woman told police she was running on the trail behind the baseball field at the corner of Rosewood and Lake drives Saturday around 4 p.m. when she spotted a man standing near a shed at the field.
The woman said the man then ran after her on the trail, caught up to her and then sexually assaulted her. The woman then managed to strike the man on the right side of his face with a rock and break free, investigators said. The woman told police the man then fled.
The suspect is described as a 40-year-old, dark-skinned, possibly Hispanic man with wrinkled skin, a scruffy beard and mustache, dark long hair and long fingernails standing approximately 5-foot-4.
