19-Year-old Woman Attacked at LaFortune


By KWGS News


Tulsa, OK – A 19-year-old woman, out for a morning jog, is attacked and sexually assaulted at Tulsa's LaFortune Park.

Tulsa Police officer Leland Ashley says the attack took place at a time when the park is usually busy, just before daybreak.

Ashley says the suspect came up behind the woman and he tried to start a conversation. When the woman ignored her, that is when he attacked.

Police are looking for a suspect. The woman did not know the man, but says he reeked of alcohol.
