Jogger Attacked on NLR Trail Speaks Out

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The victim of an attack on Easter Sunday along the Overbrook jogging trail in North Little Rock spoke out Tuesday.
 
She did not want to be identified, but she did explain the horrific attack on the trail.
 
She said she had gone out just before noon Sunday, before all of her Easter activities began. She started running when she said she saw a man in a red hoodie a few feet ahead of her. 
 
"I saw out of the corner of my eye his body turned toward me and I remember getting hit at that point on the left side of my head," she said over the phone.
 
She said while on the ground, he told her to be quiet, and when she finally did, she said he told her to throw her phone away.
 
"After walking a short way, he hit me again, knocking me to the ground, and shortly after then I was able to get away," she said.
 
North Little Rock Police and Sherwood Police are working together after a total of six attacks and sexual assaults have taken place since March 17. 
 
They said that in all the reports, the attacker was described as wearing a red hoodie, and there were other similarities as well. 
 
"It's always a concern with us whether it's 1 or 100, but we're working diligently on these and doing everything we can, talking to as many people as we can," said Sgt. Keith Wilson, with Sherwood Police.
 
NLRPD said they have received some tips, but urge anyone with information to give them a call.
