JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has released a composite sketch of a suspect in the attempted kidnapping of an adult female.
The incident happened when a 25-year-old woman was jogging down Timberlin Park Boulevard near Square Lake Boulevard at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday. The woman passed a man sitting on a bench, "gave him a smile (hello type smile)," according to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office police report, and kept walking.
She then heard footsteps behind her and began to feel "uneasy," according to the report. She started walking faster, almost running, when the man then hit her on the head four times and tried to drag her into the woods.
He first told her "be quiet" and then "shut-up, shut-up" as she attempted to break free from him, according to the report.
She fought to get away from him. During the struggle, he grabbed her ear buds out of her ears and her iPhone fell to the ground. She was able to get help from a passing motorist.
The woman was transported to Shands Trauma Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
The man is described as a white male with a tanned complexion and chin hair. He is aged 18-25, 5'6" to 5'9", 180-200 lbs with straight, short brown hair. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt with a hood and blue jeans, according to the police report.
The suspect is also facing an aggravated battery charge.
