Sheriff's deputies have released a composite sketch of the man who allegedly sexually assaulted a female jogger following a run in Zuma Canyon on Friday, according to KTLA. The 35-year-old victim fled her attacker by jumping off the cliff's edge, sustaining cuts and bruises in the fall. The suspect, possibly a transient, stole the victim's white 2004 Toyota Land Cruiser (Lic #6CHF554), after taking her keys during the attack. Because of the sexual nature of the attack, the victim's identity has not been released, however the suspect is described as a white male, 35-40 years old, who is about 5'10" tall, 200 lbs., and has "a stocky build and no front teeth." He was last seen wearing "a black leather jacket and blue jeans, but no shoes."
