CHICAGO — A 58-year-old woman jogging along the lakefront in Hyde Park was sexually assaulted Friday morning, police said.

The woman was jogging in the 5700 block of South Lake Shore Drive about 11:10 a.m. Friday when a man approached her from behind, police said.

The man grabbed her and pulled her to the ground in a "semi secluded area before physically restraining and sexually assaulting her," police said Saturday.

The assailant is described as a black man between 23 and 25 years old, standing between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-1, and weighing between 150 and 160 pounds.

He has brown eyes, black hair with twists or short braids, and a clean cut medium complexion. He was wearing a black-and-white camouflage zipper hooded sweatshirt, gray jeans and a dark knit hat with long string ties on either side, police said.

Police advise people to avoid secluded areas, such as parks, alleys and vacant lots, and to run in groups when possible.

Anyone with information can call Area Central detectives at 312-747-8380.
