At 8 a.m., a woman was attacked while walking on a south Jeffco bike path. The path, located near C-470 and Wadsworth Boulevard, includes a tunnel where it goes underneath C-470. When the woman entered the tunnel, she was attacked and sexually assaulted.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's office, she was able to escape serious injuries.

The suspect is described as a white male, 30 to 40 years old, 5'07" to 5'09" tall, 175 to 185 pounds, with a lanky and athletic build. He had tan skin and light brown hair.

Authorities will have bike patrol deputies on the bike trail Saturday handing out flyers with a composite sketch of the suspect.

If anyone recognizes the man, or has any information regarding this crime, they are asked to call 303-271-5612.
