COLUMBIA, Md. - Howard County Police say a man they believe attacked three women on jogging paths in Columbia over the past month may have struck again.
A woman walking on a path near Blade Green Lane yesterday told officers she walked past a man who was looking at his phone, and a few moments later, she says the man ran up behind her, touched her inappropriately, and then ran off.
Police say she described the attacker as a black man in his late teens to early 20s wearing workout clothes.
That's the same description provided by three other women attacked recently.
The first of those attacks happened Aug. 7, but they've continued ever since.
Police believe the same man is responsible for all four attacks.
They are asking anyone with information to call 410-313-3700.
