VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A Vancouver woman was groped by a stranger while jogging Sunday morning and now she is warning the other residents to keep an eye out for the man.

The victim, who did not want to be identified, said she was jogging down S Street near E 29th Street just before 8 a.m. when a man came up behind her and grabbed her.

Vancouver police said the woman chased after the man, but she lost him and called police. Officers were unable to locate him.

Residents in the area said they were surprised something like this could happen in their neighborhood.

“I feel like it’s a pretty safe area,” said one neighbor. “I do see police officers drive by so I feel pretty safe on this street.”

The victim described the suspect as a man in his late teens to mid 20s with a large build and a mustache.

If you have any information on this man, please call Vancouver police.
