CONROE, Texas – Authorities have released a sketch Sunday of a suspect who attacked a female jogger on Feb. 1 in Conroe.
According to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect is described as a dark colored male, approximately 6 feet tall, weighing 230 pounds, short hair, and appeared to have a tattoo or dark marking on the left side of his neck.
At the time of the assault, the suspect was reportedly wearing a blue shirt with “New York” on it, and black sweat pants. Reportedly, the suspect had an earring in his right ear.
Investigators said the assault happened at 9 a.m. in the 11900 block of Robin Lane.
The 27-year-old victim is the mother with four daughters. She told KHOU 11 News she always runs the same route.
When deputies arrived, the female jogger said she had been running through the area while listening to her iPod when someone grabbed her by her ponytail and hit her in the face.
The victim said she was forced down to the ground, face down, while someone got on top of her. She said she fought back, and was able to roll over onto her back and fight the attacker. The victim said he tried to drag her in a wooded trail.
“The dog heard me screaming and crying,” said the victim. “A brown pit bull came and chased after him. He took off running in the woods.”
Deputies said she was then able to break free and get away from her attacker.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to call (281) 577-8929 or Montgomery County Crime Stoppers.
