URBANA, Ohio (WDTN) – A Champaign County woman says she was attacked along a bike path south of State Route 55 Tuesday morning.
The 22-year-old jogger told deputies she noticed a man sitting on a bench as she ran by. She says he ran up to her and pushed down into the grass.
She says he began to scream and resist. Investigators say the man then told the woman he was joking.
The suspect was caught a short time later. He is a 15-year-old boy. Deputies say the boy told them he was only trying to scare her.
The victim got away and ran to a parking lot area where she called 911.
The teen is now in juvenile detention charged with attempted abduction.
