Jogger attacked and groped on South Main Street in Ann Arbor
A woman was attacked and groped by a man while she was jogging Wednesday night on South Main Street and elbowed him to get away, Ann Arbor police said.
The woman was jogging about 8:20 p.m. in the 2600 block of South Main Street when a man grabbed her from behind and lifted her off the ground, police spokeswoman Lt. Renee Bush said.
While the man was holding on to the woman, he groped her genitals over her clothing, Bush said. The woman elbowed him, Bush said, prompting him to let go and run away. He was seen running southbound on South Main Street, Bush said.
The 24-year-old victim, who lives in Ann Arbor, ran away and called police within minutes of the attack that occurred a few blocks north of Briarwood Mall.
The man was described as Hispanic, 5 feet, 4 inches tall, 160 pounds with short black hair. He was wearing a white and tan polo shirt, blue jeans and white baseball cap, Bush said.
