Reports: Jogger attacked in East River Park

There's not much new information to report about the jogger who was attacked in East River Park near Delancey Street yesterday morning.

Per DNAinfo:

An apparent teenage attacker tried to sexually assault a woman in broad daylight as she jogged through East River Park just before noon Thursday, police said.

The victim, 41, was running through the park near the FDR Drive and Delancey Street about 11:47 a.m., when the attacker approached her from behind, threw her to the ground, and attempted to pull off her pants, the NYPD reported.

The victim screamed and fought the suspect, who then fled the scene on foot, leaving the woman with minor bruising, police said.

According to multiple reports: "The suspect was described as a man in his late teens, with a stocky build and facial hair, wearing a grey hoodie sweatshirt and green pants."

Here's is WABC-7's report...
