Police: Woman attacked at Balboa Park

SAN DIEGO - A man jumped a woman from behind on a pedestrian trail in Balboa Park Tuesday, threw her to the ground and got on top of her, and then fled moments later when a married couple happened by, police said.

The victim, who suffered no serious injuries in the attack, described the assailant as a clean-shaven black man in his mid-20s to early 30s with a medium build and short, slightly thinning hair. He was dressed in dark-green cargo pants with green plaid boxers protruding from the waist, a white T-shirt and light-colored loafer-style shoes.
