Jogger attacked near UTB campus.
The University of Brownsville Police Department is warning the public about jogging on the levee by the Municipal Golf Course after a man attempted to assault a woman. The female was jogging in the area and was grabbed by the hand by a man hiding in the brush. She was able to escape and report the incident to campus police who then went on a search for the man. Border Patrol assisted in the search, since the area is located near the Rio Grande river, but the man was never found and believed to have crossed into Mexico.
UTB police are urging students to use the indoor track at the Rec Center on campus or run within the campus where school police patrol.
