Ottawa Police are investigating after a woman was dragged into the woods while jogging on a bike path and sexually assaulted in Ottawa's west end Saturday evening.

The 30-year-old woman was jogging on a bike path near Carling and Connaught avenues near the Lincoln Fields transit station between 8 and 10 p.m., when she came across a man tying his shoe.

The man then grabbed her and dragged her into the woods, where he sexually assaulted her.

The man is described as a black male, 20 to 30 years old, with a slim build and wearing a white T-shirt and dark pants.

Police are looking for anyone who was in the area at the time who may have seen the man in the area or on adjacent bike paths.

The assault happened not far from where 39-year-old Pamela Kosmack's beaten and half-naked body was discovered in June.

Her body was discovered by a woman walking her dog on a bike path near Britannia Park in Ottawa's west end.
