After a brief struggle, the victim was able to escape the attacker with minor injuries and was treated and released from the hospital for those injuries.

OPP are investigating an overnight attempted sexual assault with a weapon in Midland.

Police responded to Little Lake Park after the OPP Communication Centre received a 911 call at 7:23 pm Tuesday.

Officers spoke with the female victim who'd been jogging westbound on an unlit walking path through a wooded section of the park when she was knocked to the ground by an unknown male with a sharp-edged weapon.

After a brief struggle, the victim was able to escape the attacker with minor injuries and was treated and released from the hospital for those injuries.

The suspect responsible for this crime is described as a white male, 30yrs of age, who has a scab on the back of his right hand from his little finger to his thumb. 

He was wearing a black, puffy waist-length coat, a black and white mitten, non-denim pants and winter boots. 

Additionally, the suspect had a malodor of urine, skunk, mold and bad breath.

This is an isolated incident and investigators are reminding the public to be aware of their personal safety at all times and when possible, refrain from entering secluded and poorly-lit areas alone.   

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122, or by emailing opp.southern.georgian.bay@opp.ca or calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
