Hamilton police have released a composite image of the suspect who sexually assaulted a female jogger near Inch Park on Oct. 1.
Sgt. Terri-Lynn Collings said investigators have received information that a man matching the description of the suspect was seen hanging around the area for a number of days before the attack.
A woman in her late twenties was jogging by the park with her dog between 8 and 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 1 when the suspect walked out of the park ahead of her and laughed as she passed him on the sidewalk.
She continued on her way but the man followed her, suddenly running up and sexually assaulting her as he knocked her to the ground.
The woman began kicking and screaming and her attacker ran off west through the park.
The suspect is described as being about 30 years old with a medium build, pale skin and short blond hair that was spiked on top and short on the sides. He stood about five feet nine inches tall and wore baggy jeans and a plain black T-shirt.
Police continue to investigate and ask anyone with information to call Det. Jason Howard at 905-540-5544 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
