According to the victim, she encountered the man while running on the greenway and initially thought he was trying to engage her in conversation. However, the situation took a terrifying turn when the man grabbed her and put her in a chokehold. He then forcefully threw her into a fence, causing her to fall, before pinning her down. Fortunately, a witness intervened and pulled the attacker away, prompting him to flee the scene.

The suspect is described as a middle-aged man with facial hair and tan skin. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and dark slipper-type shoes. Prior to the assault, he was observed walking away from a nearby homeless camp.

Authorities urge anyone who recognizes the suspect from surveillance photos to contact the police at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Calls to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.

This incident serves as a reminder for residents to remain vigilant while using public spaces and to report any suspicious activity to law enforcement promptly.
