SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A tall, barefoot man tackled a jogger on a Pacific Beach roadside Thursday and groped her until she was able to fight him off, authorities reported.
The 26-year-old woman was running in the 1300 block of Diamond Street when the assailant jumped her and pulled her to the ground about 8:15 a.m., according to San Diego police.
He then pinned her down and fondled her before she managed to push him away. At that point, the man ran off, got into a white sedan and drove away.
The victim described the attacker as a thin, approximately 6-foot-tall Latino in his late 20s, with a dark complexion and wearing khaki shorts, a blue tank top and no shoes or socks.
She told investigators the car in which he fled appeared to be a mid-1990s model, possibly an Acura or a Honda Civic, police said.
