A man assaulted a woman while she was exercising at Tumamoc Hill on Monday morning, police said.

According to a crime alert issued by the University of Arizona Police Department on Tuesday, the man ran into the woman, knocking her down. The man then attempted to pin the woman to the ground, but the woman was able to fight him off and yelled for help. The woman was not injured in the incident, police said.

The man fled in an unknown direction, UAPD said in the alert.

The man is described as a Hispanic individual in his 40s and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and brown shorts.
