WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in eastern Iowa are increasing their presence at recreational trails in the area after a woman said she was sexually assaulted while jogging at a state park in Waterloo.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office says more law enforcement officers would be on bike and recreational trails in the county following a report Tuesday that a woman was sexually assaulted at George Wyth State Park.

KWWL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1ShKqgT ) the woman told authorities she was jogging on a trail when she was attacked from behind. She was taken to a hospital and authorities shut down the park to look for a suspect. No one was placed into custody and the park reopened Tuesday night.

Authorities are encouraging people to stay alert and to use the trails with a friend.
