A Lakewood woman reported being attacked as she was running along the 7100 block of Meadow Lake Monday morning at about 6:30 a.m.

Early morning joggers frequent this and nearby streets that lead to the popular jogging trails at White Rock Lake, so the report is alarming.

The runner says a man grabbed her shoulder and then her buttocks. She screamed loudly and he took off, according to a Lakewood Crime Watch report. The victim described him as Hispanic, 5’7 and wearing jeans and a navy or dark jacket. She was alone and wearing headphones, according to the neighborhood crime watch alert, which warns women to exercise in pair and sans the headphones in order to maintain a keen awareness of surroundings.
