Wichita police are asking for help finding a man accused of assaulting women jogging near Riverside.
Authorities investigated two similar reports on May 6 around 10 a.m. Police said the women were jogging in the 700 block of N. Amidon, when a man jumped out from behind some bushes and grabbed one of the joggers by her shirt. The woman managed to get away and called 911 to report the incident.
Officers received a similar report a short time later, when the suspect grabbed the jogger's wrist. The woman escaped and ran home to call 911.
The suspect is described as a white male, in his late 20s. He is about 6' tall with short, brown curly hair. He had a large earring in his left ear and was wearing a blue and white collared shirt, blue jeans and black shoes.
