A man was arrested and put in detox after attempting to grab a 49-year-old female jogger this morning. The woman was jogging northbound on the west side of the 1900 block of North Washington Street – near Northbrook Mall – at around 7:15am.
The suspect was walking southbound on the opposite side of the street when he crossed the street and began to follow her. When the victim noticed the man reaching for her arm, she yelled and ran from him.
An initial search of the area resulted in no suspects. However, at 9:15am a call came in matching the suspect’s description near Plaza Drug – on Third Street.
The case has been submitted to the city attorney’s office for further review.
