Fear has run into a Richmond community after a female jogger was attacked by a man who tried to sexually assault her. Fort Bend County authorities say it happened when the woman was running near the Grand Mission subdivision near Grand Mission Boulevard and Bellaire Boulevard Sunday afternoon.
The women in the community, including jogger Sandra Garcia, are concerned.
"You don't think that this happens in this neighborhood," said Garcia. "I mean, this is a nice neighborhood. You know, people are out walking the dog. You don't think that that would actually happen in this type of neighborhood, so it's a little scary, or a lot scary actually."
Deputies were in the community Wednesday searching for more evidence around the trails and informing people about the attack. They said the assailant was wearing a hoodie and tried to assault his victim on a secluded area adjacent to the jogging trail.
The assailant is described as a white male in his mid to late 20s, about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds.
Investigators said the man also has a distinct tribal like tattoo about 4 inches in length on the right side of his neck.
The attempted assault has women reconsidering their routines.
"I probably won't go alone anymore, or I probably just won't jog in the area," said Garcia. "I'll go somewhere else or do it in the gym that they have."
