The woman ran through a wooded area on an unpaved trail after completing her jog near Professor's Lake, near Bovaird Drive East and Torbram Road. Police reports claim that she tripped and fell to the ground, and when getting up, a man appeared from the wooded area.
The man grabbed the woman by the waist and refused to let go. She kicked the man's leg to attempt to stop him, but to no avail.
