APD: Woman assaulted while jogging on track at Austin High School
Police say a female jogger was assaulted last month while she was using the track at Austin High School.
It happened Tuesday, Aug. 22, at approximately 5 a.m. at the school located just southeast of the intersection of MoPac and West Cesar Chavez Street.
Investigators say the victim had just completed several laps on the track when she was grabbed and "bear hugged" from behind.
The suspect tried to put a cloth over the victim's mouth, but after a brief struggle she was able to run away and call police. Detectives say the victim had seen the suspect and his vehicle multiple times around the school prior to the assault.
The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-40's, 6'0" to 6'2" with a medium build, and approximately 215lbs. He has broad shoulders, tan skin, and unkempt medium length brown hair. No body or facial hair was reported.
He was last seen wearing shorts and work boots. He was not wearing a shirt at the time of the assault. His vehicle is described as an older model small car, dark green or blue with white stripes on the passenger side of the vehicle.
