An Assault Suspect is Still on the Loose in Yakima

YAKIMA, Wash. - A man is still at-large tonight after an attempted kidnapping and assault on Tuesday afternoon.

The Yakima Greenway was the area where the incident happened.

Now people are concerned for their safety at the popular running and recreational destination.

A man in his 20s assaulted a 22-year-old woman in broad daylight.

And if not for the help of a heads up runner at the park, the situation might've been much worse.

One local woman who comes to the park every week says she will be much more careful around the place.

Police are still searching for the suspect.

He was last seen by the victim and witness riding west from the park.

The suspect is 5'9" with beard stubble on his face and weighs around 140 lbs.

If you have any information about the incident, all 911.
