Capt. Paul Starks, MCPD spokesman, said police are investigating the incident as a possible sexual assault. The woman went to the hospital for treatment of a head wound, according to a report from NBC4.
The incident occurred just after sunset about a half-mile south of Massachusetts Avenue, according to police. The woman said she stopped to watch a group of deer cross the trail, when she was struck from behind. She regained consciousness in the woods off the trail, Starks said, before a male jogger passing by helped her to a house in the 4900 block of Brookeway Drive.
Police were called to the house at about 7:13 p.m. A forensic team was on the scene late Sunday night. Police taped off an area in front of the house, at the end of the cul-de-sac that backs up to a trail entry point.
Starks said police will put out a release on the incident today.
