WHEATON, Ill. -- A woman was attacked in broad daylight on the Illinois Prairie Path in unincorporated Wheaton.

Authorities say a man grabbed her and lifted her up around 3:30pm on Monday between County Farm Road and Pleasant Hill Road. The man appeared to be resting on the path before he attacked her.

She was able to break free. She wasn't hurt.

The man ran-off toward the intersection of Peter Road and Churchill Road.

The man is described as white, in his 20s, has a medium muscular build, and was unshaven. He wore sunglasses, a red cutoff t-shirt, black pants, and a black baseball cap that was backwards. Police released a sketch of him.

There was a similar attack back in September.
