Police say a woman's dog chased away the man harming her.
The victim was at America the Beautiful the Park near downtown Colorado Springs Thursday night when police say a man attacked her from behind. He forced her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.
Her dog was sitting in a nearby car; it jumped out the window during the assault and chased the suspect off. Police say the dog may have bitten the suspect in the leg.
Police are now looking for the suspect, who is described as a black male with a "chin strap" style beard. He is about 5-foot-9 and has an average build, and was wearing dark clothing, including a hoodie, at the time of the incident. He may be wearing a distinct belt buckle, described as a large oval.
If you have any information on this assault, you are asked to call police at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
