St. Charles police: Woman grabbed during Friday run

ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department is reminding joggers to be aware of their surroundings after a 29-year-old woman reported a man grabbed her buttock during a run Friday, police spokesman Paul McCurtain said.



The woman told police she was running north on the bike path in the 1100 block of Geneva Road in St. Charles at about 10 a.m. when a man walking in the opposite direction reached out and grabbed her, police said.



The woman immediately stopped to confront the man, who ran into the wooded area near the Park Shore Apartments, police said. St. Charles and Geneva police officers reportedly searched the area, but didn't find the man.



McCurtain described the situation as an "isolated incident" and said it is safe to run in St. Charles. But he added that runners should carry a cellphone and immediately call 911 if they see anything suspicious.



In this case, McCurtain said, the man could be charged with battery, and a reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.



The woman described him as having a medium build that was muscular but not bulky and average length, dark wavy hair. He was wearing a black AC/DC T-shirt and a dark colored baseball cap.



Those with information should call the St. Charles Police Department's nonemergency number, 630-377-4435, or TriCom Dispatch at 911 if they see a man who matches the description.
