Springfield police are still searching for a man that they believe attacked a female jogger on West Washington early Wednesday morning.
The 55-year-old woman was grabbed from behind as she jogged west of Chatham Road.
The man dragged her down an embankment and tried to pin her down, striking her.
But police say she screamed and fought back, kicking the man until he fled. The suspect is described as black, around six feet tall, and thin.
He reportedly got into a car driven by another man and sped off.
Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Crimestoppers.
