FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (KMSP) -

The St. Anthony Police Department issued a crime alert on Tuesday after a man grabbed a woman who was jogging on Monday night in what appears to be a random act.

UPDATE: Crime alert canceled; Incident was attempted 'joke'

According to police, the assault took place in the area of West Larpenteur and Snelling avenues in Falcon Heights between 7:30 and 7:45 p.m. There was a delay in reporting the incident since the victim did not call until returning to her home, police said.

The victim was jogging when an unknown man grabbed her from behind, but the crime alert states that the woman was able to fight off her assailant and he ran in an unknown direction.

Anyone who may have been in the area at the time or knows anything related to the incident is asked to contact either the St. Anthony Police Department at 612-782-3350 or Ramsey County Dispatch at 651-767-0640.
