Female Battered While Jogging In Coeur d' Alene; Police Need Your Help

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Coeur d'Alene Police detectives are investigating a battery of a 29-year-old female that occurred on September 12th at 9:30am in the 6700 block of N. Courcelles Way. The victim stated she was jogging on a dirt road that she described as the east side of the tree line, at the north side of Skyway Elementary, and north of the soccer field.

She said she heard someone behind her and started to turn around. She stated a male suspect pushed her from behind. The victim said she fell to the ground and the male grabbed her around the left shoulder and her head, and turned her toward him. The victim said she was able to get on her feet and hit the suspect with her hands several times.

The female said the male took off running due to a car approaching. She described the suspect as a white male, 20 to 30 years of age,  6'2, average build, short dark brown hair, unshaven, wearing a yellow shirt and red running shorts.

The victim sustained slight abrasions to her knee and the palm of her hand.

Detectives have followed up on leads but no suspect information has been developed. It is unknown if this was a sexually motivated attack, but due to the aggressiveness of the suspect the Police Department is advising females to be alert, and take all safety pre-cautions while exercising outdoors.
