A midday workout ended in cuts and bruises for a woman who was the victim of a sexual assault attempt in Malibu, according to the Huffington Post.

The woman "told deputies she had finished a run at about noon at Point Dume State Beach and was standing at the edge of a cliff when she was grabbed from behind. She says she and the man struggled for several minutes before she was able to break away. That's when the woman ran and jumped off the cliff."

The suspect then fled in the woman's vehicle, a Toyota Land Cruiser. The woman was taken to the hospital to be treated for her injuries.
