A 23-year-old woman jogging through Forest Park was attacked by a man who zapped her with a stun gun and sexually assaulted her Friday evening, police said.

The jogger was taken to a hospital, where she was to be treated for injuries to her neck, police said.

Police asked for the public’s help in locating the suspect, who they described as white, between 35 and 40 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and medium build with reddish/brown hair and facial hair. They said he was seen wearing a gold hoop earring and a navy blue hoodie and track pants.
