A woman jogger was sexually assaulted in Central Park Thursday morning, an NYPD spokesperson said.
“[The assault] occurred at 7:21 a.m., on a footpath in the vicinity of Wollman Rink [near 63rd Street],” an NYPD spokesperson told WSR. “A woman 20-30 was attacked by a dark-skinned male.”
“She was grabbed from behind and put in a chokehold…,” according to ABC. “She lost consciousness and awoke with cuts, abrasions and bruises to her arms and chin.” The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said. The victim was taken to Mt. Sinai West, in stable condition.
