WASHINGTON -- Police are looking for help locating and identifying a suspect in a Monday sexual assault on Sligo Creek Parkway.
Maryland-National Capital Park Police say the assault occurred between Maple Avenue and Piney Branch Road around 7 a.m. in Montgomery County. A woman was jogging when the man, whom she initially jogged past, grabbed her buttocks.
She was able to flee in the opposite direction.
The suspect was a black man, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall and wearing a blue hoodie abd black sweat pants. The hood of the shirt partially concealed his face.
Anyone with information should call 301-949-8010.
Police also released these tips:
- Avoid dark, vacant, or deserted areas; use well-lit and traveled areas. Avoid walking alone with a music player and earphones-you can't hear people approaching from behind. If you must, then use only one side.
- Dress in clothes and shoes that will not hamper movement.
- Be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times.
