Second sexual assault attempt at park in Milwaukee south suburbs
ST. FRANCIS - Twice in two weeks, a woman has had someone try to sexually assault them while jogging in Milwaukee's southern suburbs.
Investigators are checking into whether the attacks are related.
Police are looking for the suspect in the St. Francis case.
"After work, what I usually do is go running in the area," said Delia Dora, who uses a park in St. Francis.
Dora said that after a man attacked someone at Bay View Park Friday night, she has changed her routine.
"I have to be more careful. I'm going ot be scared all the time, in this area, to walk at night."
Police say a man knocked a woman down and tried to assault her at the park, but she was able to break free.
Authorities also said another man saw the attack and left the area.
"When I heard about it, I was pretty shocked just, because Bay View is pretty safe," explained Kylie Cherpes.
"That's how I picked the place when I moved here."
The police chief chose not to talk on camera, but said they are looking for similarities to other cases, including one in Cudahy.
A similar attack happened when a man jumped out and tried to grab a woman jogging in Warnimont Park.
In the latest attack, the man is described as possibly Hispanic and stocky.
