WALKERSVILLE, Md. — Maryland State Police say a man assaulted two women jogging on a park path in Frederick County.

Police say the man grabbed a 37-year-old woman from behind as she jogged in Walkersville Community Park on Sunday afternoon. The woman fought back as the man tried to pull off her pants.

That’s when police say a 50-year-old woman jogger fought to get the man off the first woman and called 911, but she was assaulted by the man too. After a brief altercation, police say the man ran off.

State troopers and Frederick County sheriff’s deputies surrounded the area to search for the man, but he was not found.

Police say neither woman complained of serious injury. Both refused medical treatment.
