Utah woman stabs - then chases - man who groped her while jogging

Utah woman stabs - then chases - man who groped her while jogging

The courageous woman gave chase after the man before she stopped and went home to report the incident, police said.

Salt Lake City Police Detective Greg Wilking told KUTV: 'A male approached her from behind and attacked her, groped her. The woman didn't let him get away just yet, though.

Police say a male neighbor was standing in the common area between the woman's home and his home when she suddenly came out of her house and stabbed him the neck.

But the man who allegedly groped her probably wasn't expecting what happened next: His target pulled out a small knife, and then used it to stab him several times as he tried to grab her, police said.

Officers are now trying to identify the suspect, who is believed to have suffered minor wounds to his chest and arms. "Described as wearing a gray sweatshirt, he was carrying a backpack and we're not sure about his age, anywhere from teenager up to his thirties".

"It's pretty extreme, but in this case, it worked to her advantage". Police also said that the groping could have led a lot more.

Police mentioned they haven't received any information about the suspect's whereabouts or if he had visited any hospital for treatment.

Police took the woman's knife to test it for DNA, Wilking said.

"We certainly don't want to have another incident like this, and we would like to get this person identified and off the street", Wilking said.

"She was prepared, she took steps to be prepared and then on top of it, she fought back so she wasn't a willing victim", he said. "We're happy that it turned out well for her", he said.
