SAND SPRINGS, Okla. - A day after the attempted rape of a woman on a Sand Springs jogging trail, police have extra officers patrolling the area, but they're warning joggers to be on the lookout.
Police say a man threatened a 20-year-old woman jogging on the River City Park trail around 4:30 Sunday afternoon. The suspect used a gun and a knife to force the woman into the woods around the bend of the trail near Highway 97.

Police are currently looking for any possible witnesses who can help identify the suspect, described as a slender white man about 6 feet tall with blond or gray hair.
The suspect was riding a black bicycle with a hard or rigid case on the handle bars.
"We think the disturbing thing is the time of day, the fact that he was armed and the aggressive manner in which he took that makes us worry about this as far as could he be out in the area," said Sand Springs Deputy Chief of Police Mike Carter.
To avoid a potential attack, police say walk or job with a buddy, carry a cellphone and be aware of surroundings and suspicious individuals.
