A female jogger was sexually assaulted on a trail in the Georgetown area by a man who put her in a chokehold, causing her to lose consciousness on Wednesday night, authorities said.
U.S. Park Police said the assault occurred on the Capital Crescent Trail north of Three Sisters Islands about 9:15 p.m. The woman was attacked from behind and awoke as the man was sexually assaulting her, according to police.
The woman screamed and the man fled on foot toward Fletcher's Boat House.
No weapons were used in the assault, according to police.
Police described the suspect as between five feet eight inches to five feet 11 inches tall and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds. He has a muscular build, dreadlocks three to four inches long and a light scruffy beard, police said.
