EDMONDS — A 35-year-old woman was attacked by a stranger while on her morning run in Edmonds on Tuesday.

He ran away. The woman went to a nearby home looking for help and a phone to call 911.

Police searched the area but did not find the suspect, Hawley said. The man was described as white and about 6-feet-tall. He was wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt and gray sweatpants.

A neighbor provided surveillance video of the suspect walking down the road.
