About one week after a woman said she was abducted while jogging along Southwest Parkway and raped, another young woman claims she escaped a similar situation.
College Station Police say about 7 p.m. Saturday, a 16-year-old girl was walking in the 1500 block of Southwest Parkway, when a man stopped her.
The teen told police, the man grabbed her by the arm, covered her mouth with his hand, and tried to drag her away into nearby bushes. The girl allegedly fought back, escaped, and called police.
The suspect is described as a 40-year-old white man, about 5'9'', 160 pounds with gray hair, brown eyes and a mustache. Police say he was last seen wearing tan shorts, a white TAMU t-shirt and sandals.
The man's description is different than the men accused of last week's attack. Police say they are described as black men, two are believed to be between the ages of 25 and 32 and between 5'6'' and 5'10''.
Police say the trio allegedly forced the woman into a dark colored van and sexually assaulted her. The woman says she was then dropped off at an intersection off of Wellborn Road.
If you have any information on either incident, you're asked to call College Station police at 764-3600.
