Broward deputies are searching for a man they say has assaulted two female joggers while armed.
The man attacked two women in two separate incidents on Apr. 29 and May 1 along the Hamptons Boulevard/Avon Lane corridor, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.
Deputies said he approached both women with a gun, spoke to them in Spanish and tried to drag them into bushes or a tree line.
The victims, who do not speak English, fought back, and were able to escape, officials said. One woman hit his face, the other bit his hands, according to deputies.
Authorities are looking for a clean-shaven man in his mid- to late 20s, about 5'9" to 6' tall, with dark spiky hair. Police said he may have moles along the side of his face and bite marks on his hands.
The man is believed to be targeting areas between West McNab Road and Tam O'Shanter Boulevard.
Deputies are asking that anyone with information contact BSO Det. Zachary Scott at (954) 321-4200 or report anonymous tips to Broward County Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
