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.
