FALLBROOK (CNS) - Authorities Friday released a composite sketch of a man who they say jumped a jogger as she pushed her 2-year-old daughter in a stroller in Fallbrook, then sexually assaulted the woman.
The attack took place on a pedestrian path near Lake Shore Park about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to San Diego County sheriff's officials.
Following the assault, the assailant, who was armed with a knife, fled the area on foot, sheriff's Lt. Jeff Duckworth said.
The victim described the perpetrator as a 6-foot-1 to 6-foot-2-inch white or Latino man in his mid-30s to early 40s, with a tanned complexion, a "beer belly," dark, close-cropped hair, and a neatly trimmed full beard and mustache.
He was wearing black clothing, including work-style pants and a short-sleeved T-shirt with holes in it, the lieutenant said.
Anyone who suspects they may know the man's identity was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
