PROVO — Police are searching for a man who they say attacked a woman while she was jogging in Provo on Saturday night.
The 31-year-old woman was near 600 South and Slate Canyon Drive about 10 p.m. Saturday when she said she saw a man on the other side of the street, Provo police officer Misha King said.
Moments later, the man came up behind the woman and pushed her to the ground, attempting to grab her throat from behind, King said.
The woman was able to kick the man off of her and escape, running home to call police. Her only injuries were scrapes on her knees from falling.
Police say the man had a medium build and a dark complexion and was possibly in his mid-20s.
