Bend Police are looking for information about a man believed to have groped a female jogger on the Deschutes River Canyon Trail on Saturday.

A 45-year-old woman from Bend was running with her dogs on the trail Saturday evening when she saw a man wearing dark pants and a dark jacket, or hoodie, approach, according to police. She pulled the dogs to the side of the trail near the southern footbridge to let him pass, police said.

The man grabbed at her waist and buttocks as he walked by, police said. One of her dogs ran off during the encounter, and the two were later reunited.

Police believe the man is between 20 and 40 years old, with an average build. Officers searched for him with a police dog and a drone, but they couldn’t find him.

It was the only reported incident of sexual harassment on the Deschutes River Trail that day. Police want residents to call 541-693-6911 with any additional information about this incident or similar occurrences on the trial.
