The Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety released a sketch of the suspect who assaulted a female jogger near an apartment complex a week ago. The 23-year-old woman was jogging on Five Creek Path behind the Americana and Park Ridge apartment complexes around 3:25 p.m. June 17 when she was confronted by a man who said "Come here girlie," police said. The man grabbed the woman by both forearms. When the woman pulled away, the man brandished a box cutter and slashed at the woman's face, according to police. The woman raised her arms to block the attack but received a 6-inch cut on her left forearm, police said. She was treated for her injury at a hospital and released. The suspect is a white male, 30-35 years old, between 6 feet 2 inches and 6 feet 4 inches and 210-230 pounds. He was bald, had a light complexion and a tattoo on his right arm. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (707) 584-2600.
