Jogger sexually assaulted in Woodbury
by Bailey Haack
A woman jogging early Saturday was sexually assaulted as she ran through a Woodbury Park, authorities said.
The woman, 33, was on a shaded walking path on the northeast side of Markgrafs Lake around 5:30 a.m., according to the Star Tribune.
The attacker was alone, and the victim did not know him, police said. According the Pioneer Press, the woman suffered physical injuries and was evaluated at Woodwinds Hospital. She has since been released.
"Nothing like that has happened here," said Ed West, who walked around the lake with his family on Sunday according to the Star Tribune. "It's pretty upsetting to the community."
Police are still investigating the case, and asking the public for any help in identifying the suspect, said the Star Tribune. Sgt. Chris Murray advised residents of the area to be vigilant and not walk alone if possible.
