Few details were immediately available. Sandy police said they believe the suspect is a 6-foot man in his 20s with a dark complexion and a thin build. He was thought to be wearing a black beanie hat, plaid jacket and Vans-style shoes that are red, black and white.

The park, also known as Dimple Dell gully, covers roughly 650 acres of undeveloped land between 300 East and 3000 East, just north of 10600 South. The area's unpaved trails are popular with hikers, dog walkers and horseback riders.
