WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) - Chelan County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating an assault after a 16-year-old girl reported being grabbed by a man while hiking on a trail.

The sheriff’s office says it happened Tuesday evening on the Saddlerock Trail in Wenatchee. The girl called 911 to report that a man grabbed her around the waist and pulled her back. She yelled, broke free and ran down the hill. She joined up with another group of hikers and hiked to the parking lot.

The girl told deputies she saw the man at the top of the trail and they exchanged smiles. Later, she had headphones on so didn’t hear him approach.

Witnesses reported seeing a man running down the hill and leaving in his car.
