SAN DIEGO — Authorities Tuesday released a sketch of a man who attacked and sexually assaulted a UC San Diego staff member as she was jogging at the La Jolla campus.

The woman was running alongside Campus Point Drive, just south of Voigt Drive, last Tuesday when the attacker ran up behind her, reached between her legs and groped her groin area, according to UCSD police.

Officers searched the area by ground and aboard a law enforcement helicopter but were unable to locate the groper, who the victim described as a bald-headed, roughly 6-foot-1-inch, 215-pound man in his late 20s or early 30s, with an athletic build and wearing blue jeans and a white shirt.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call Detective Brian MacPherson at 858-534-4357.
