Monday, May 15, 2017 @ 3:39 PM

Prince George, B.C. – A frightening attack on a female jogger has Mounties pleading for witnesses to come forward.

Prince George RCMP Cpl. Craig Douglass says the unprovoked attack occurred last night at around 11:30 p.m. as the female was jogging along Foothills Boulevard and Ochakwin Crescent.

“The male attacker knocked the victim to the ground, struck her a number of times and attempted to sexually assault her,” he says.

“A passing vehicle slowed down and honked, causing the attacker to flee on foot. The driver of the vehicle did not stop. The victim suffered non-life threatening injures, but was able to get to safety. The attacker may have marks or injuries.”

The suspect is described as:

  • Male
  • Medium build
  • Taller than five-foot-seven
  • Wearing a black hoody

“This incident is deeply disturbing,” says Inspector Shaun Wright, Operations Officer at the Prince George detachment. “We are asking the driver of the vehicle that came across this incident to contact us, as well as anyone else with information to also come forward and help us identify the man involved in this disturbing attack.”

In light of this incident, police warn joggers not to use headphones or anything else that can restrict your hearing, to stay in well-lit areas and whenever possible do not travel alone.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 250-561-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


Gee you think the race would help?

    Gee, you think maybe it was dark and he was wearing a hoodie and she didn’t see?

Seen a strange incident at Parkwood by the movie theatre a couple weeks ago. I was at the four way by the Bay and I heard a lot of yelling so I couldn’t get turned around but was able to pull in to the parkaid overlooking the area. As I got out of the minivan a native guy came up the stairwell pulling over his red hoodie and was looking to jump the female security guard as she came up the stairs… He seen me and then ran towards Winnipeg street. The back of his red hoodie had native artwork on it… The female security guard came up the stairs and was going to go hot pursuit, but I was like are you dumb, call the cops that guy is obviously dangerous and louring you into a dangerous spot… Just then a man came running by yelling he had been attacked… The security guard followed the attacked man to Staples and I tried unsuccessfully to track the guy in the red hoodie while calling the cops. I couldn’t leave the van though as I had my kids with me. Turns out the guy attacked on Winnipeg street was pepper sprayed by this red hoodie guy for no reason other than the wrong place at the wrong time. police response was slow and I don’t know if they ever caught the guy. Fire truck arrived before the police did.

Race? really ? wont help if the victim cant say what race ,irrelevant, this woman should have never had this happen to her, day, night anytime, ever. I hope one day this piece of garbage gets what he deserves coming one day , very soon , I hope
