Chilling CCTV Footage Of A Man Chasing A Female Jogger

The horrifying moment a female jogger was allegedly attacked by a stranger was caught on CCTV.

South Australia police released the footage to the public as they appeal for more information about the alleged assault of the woman in front of a bus stop in Oaklands Road at Marion in Adelaide last Thursday.

The woman was running alone at about 5.40 am when the alleged attack occurred. While the man managed to touch her, the victim broke free and was not injured.

Following the attack, police searched the surrounding area but did not find the man.

Just one hour later, police were called to nearby Austral Terrace at Morphettville after a different woman, who had been out walking,  said she was being followed by a vehicle.

Police are still investigating both incidents and it is unclear if they are linked at this stage.
