MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police say they have identified and are searching for a man suspected of trying to sexually assault a woman in a park.

Police said Sunday a 25-year-old woman reported the attempted assault that happened Friday evening in the city’s Riverwest neighborhood.

She tells police she was walking on the sidewalk around 7 p.m. when the man forced her into the small park. Police say he hit her several times and ran away when she screamed.

They say she was taken to a hospital for treatment for injuries that weren’t life threatening.

Police say they are looking into whether the assault is connected to others that have happened on the city’s north side in recent months.
