Police release details, seek possible witnesses in assault of Edmond jogger

Department releases details in reported attack near I-35

EDMOND — Police said they hope the release of more information will lead to an arrest in the assault of a 20-year-old woman who was jogging earlier this week in Edmond near Interstate 35.

At 10:12 p.m. Tuesday Edmond Police Officer Jason Roach responded to a home north of East Second Street and west of I-35 to assist a fellow officer on a call involving a woman who had just returned home from jogging and she was covered in blood, according to a report filed by Roach.

After Roach arrived he could see that the victim had several head injuries and was vomiting, police said. When he asked her what happened she had a blank stare while she looked at him. He asked if she was struck by a vehicle and she said “No,” police said.

Police said the officer asked again and she said “I don’t remember much. I remember pushing someone away and biting on their hand or arm.” She said she ran to Walmart, 1225 W. I-35 Frontage Road, along the service road, and made several statements about a bridge, but could not elaborate any further, police said.

The reporting party said the victim went out for a run and when she returned she cried out “help,” police said. He saw that she was covered in blood, asked her if he needed to call 911 and she said “Yes,” police said.

Edmond Police Department spokeswoman Jenny Monroe said there are no suspects at this time and the agency is asking for anyone who was along the I-35 Frontage Road between 15th Street and Second Street sometime before 10:12 p.m. Tuesday to call the EPD’s Crime Stoppers at 359-4466. Callers may remain anonymous and may receive a reward for information leading to an arrest.

Monroe said Thursday afternoon, after the EPD released a surveillance image of a man at the Circle K at 15th Street and I-35, police identified and contacted the man.

“We will be speaking with him and see if he has any information that could help detectives working this case,” Monroe said.

Individuals may also use the EPD’s online crime tip form. Visit edmondok.com and click on “City Services,” “Services H-Z,” “Public Safety,” “Police Department,” “Crime Prevention and “Edmond Crime Stoppers.” Then click on “Crime Tip Form.”

The EPD also has a TEXT-A-TIP Program. To text a tip to the EPD, you must have text messaging enabled on your phone. Send your text to 625-TEXT or 625-8398. The service will not generate a radio call or bring police to your location. You will never receive a return text. Information sent is disseminated to the appropriate EPD detectives.

  • earth day 7.jpg Central community learns about water conservation

    Edmond residents know about rain that falls from their roofs after a storm. Some may not know what kind of important role it plays in the nation’s water supply.
    Tim Tillman, the University of Central Oklahoma’s sustainability coordinator, said UCO has a tradition of innovation in sustainable practices. Tillman said Earth Day, first brought to the campus more than 20 years ago, began that tradition.
    During Tuesday’s Earth Day Fair, Jason Summers, a Coca-Cola account manager for on-premise sales, was giving away rain barrels and educating members of the Central Oklahoma community about the benefits of rain barrels.

Poll

Do you agree with a state budget proposal that takes some funds away from road and bridge projects to ramp up education funding by $29.85 million per year until schools are receiving $600 million more a year than they are now? In years in which 1 percent revenue growth does not occur in the general fund, the transfer would not take place.
