Footpath cordoned off after attempted assault on female jogger

Essex County Standard: Footpath cordoned off after attempted assault on female jogger Footpath cordoned off after attempted assault on female jogger

POLICE have cordoned off a footpath after a man tried to assault a woman late last night.

The woman was jogging in Peache Road, Colchester, at about 10pm when she was approached by a man who lunged at her.

She was able to push him away and get home.

Police officers cordoned after the footpath towards Port Lane and searched the area.

A man was located who fitted the victim’s description.

The man, aged 19 from Colchester, was arrested on suspicion of attempted assault and other unrelated offences.

He is currently in police custody.

The incident happened just days after student Nahid Al-Manea was murdered on a footpath in Greenstead.

A police spokesman said: “Detectives from the murder investigation are looking closely at this incident but there is nothing to link it at this time.”

Although i do hope the jogger wasnt hurt, That was my exact thoughts! All it needs is a bit of common sense, If the police are warning people not to go out alone then I think where possible this advice should be followed until the sick person is caught.

What's wrong with some of you commenters? Calling someone stupid for doing something completely normal - she's not to blame for someone trying to attack her. We shouldn't have to lock ourselves in our homes because there was another murder. The police's actual advice was "Try not to go to places where you may be vulnerable," and you shouldn't have to feel vulnerable while out and about. Is this how it's going to be now? If someone is attacked in the evening it's their own fault for being out?

It's not stupid to go out at any time of the day or night. It's the easy option to blame the victim, then we can consider our selves to be safe because we wouldn't do such a 'stupid' thing. The alternative is understanding you are not responsible for someone else's behaviour. The blame belongs with the attacker never the victim.

I don't believe there is any apportioning of blame in the previous comments, but we do have to take responsibility for our own safety too.

There have been two murders in Colchester in the last few months, both of which have been of a frenzied nature.

Whilst we all have the freedom to go jogging after dark alone, the common sense approach would be to abstain from entering into a vulnerable position until the perpetrators have been caught.

It is far cry from Honduras out there but there are still some crazy people out there so we should just be a little bit more careful !

At times like this, each individual has to use their own common sense. It's not a case of stopping people going out, maybe just change the route you take (if possible) to somewhere not excluded etc. I for one take my dogs out early morning in the country park, but now I personally feel safer going with someone else. Everyone is different so will have their own views and opinions on these situations.

If running in a residential area when you get home from work is, in your book, the height of stupidity, then that's your right to have that opinion but maybe keep it to yourself. Given that the second murder occurred in the morning it kind of implies that no time of day is safe.

The attacker is the sole person responsible for attacking her, it's not her who's at fault and she's certainly not stupid for being out.

Well, I can certainly see lamps on that photo, although the article says she was "jogging in Peache Road", so perhaps it was cordoned off because that's where they thought the attacker came from or that's where he ran off too, we don't know. Where it was is fairly irrelevant anyway, the first response when someone get's attacked while doing something completely normal at a reasonable hour shouldn't be calling the person stupid, the attacker is the issue here.

Even after the James Atfield murder, I commented that there should be signs warning the public of the dangers of using these footpaths after dark. Now it seems you cannot use them in the day either.

If this is the same sick human being who murdered Nahid, he has now been caught. Whether this 'jogger lady' was stupid for going out late at night down a secluded area or not, she may of well of played a vital role in putting this killer behind bars.

Genius!Police warn people not to go out alone, so woman goes out jogging at 10pm!
What's wrong with some of you commenters? Calling someone stupid for doing something completely normal - she's not to blame for someone trying to attack her. We shouldn't have to lock ourselves in our homes because there was another murder. The police's actual advice was "Try not to go to places where you may be vulnerable," and you shouldn't have to feel vulnerable while out and about. Is this how it's going to be now? If someone is attacked in the evening it's their own fault for being out?
Wormshero, I don't think the others on the thread were suggestion we don't leave home till the person(s) responsible are caught. It's perhaps more that during a period of high unsolved violence everyone would be wise to reduce their exposure to risk by avoiding isolated areas - just common sense.

There are thousands of people in Colchester who do not read the local paper, either in print or on line, and they don't listen to local radio either. So unless the police distribute leaflets to every household (which would probably be binned without reading) there is no way they can get their message across to everyone.
We need to bear this in mind before calling anyone stupid for doing what, in normal circumstances, would be a perfectly normal thing to do.

So, knowing that there is (at least one) killer on the loose and, knowing what the police have said about not going out alone, would YOU go out jogging at 10 pm?
