(SALEM, Ore. ) - Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies are asking for the public’s help in locating a man who attempted to rape a woman Thursday night in northeast Salem.

Deputies say last night just after 10:00 PM, they responded to Chemeketa Community College on the report of an attempted rape.

The victim, a 26-year-old female, was jogging at the college's outdoor track.

There were several other runners at the track as well as the suspect.

As the other runners left and only the victim and suspect remained the suspect approached the victim from behind and pushed her to the ground.

He attempted to pull her clothing off, however, the victim had a set of keys in hand and began hitting the suspect in the face with them.

At that time the suspect let the victim go and fled the area on foot.

K-9 units from Marion County and Salem Police responded to check the area for the suspect, however he remains at large.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic Male, 25 years of age, with a medium build.

He has short black hair and has no facial hair. He was last seen wearing black shorts and a black sleeveless shirt.

Anyone with information on this suspect should contact the Marion County Sheriff’s Office at (503) 588-5032.

Ten to one the scumbag is an illegal too. Break one law, might as well ignore them all, right? And what the heck is wrong with you Jacqu? She can be out as late as she likes... she is an adult and this is a free country. What is with this blaming the victim trip you seem to be on? Absolutely outrageous. In a perfect justice world this clown would be fed his own genitals. As it is a good 40 yrs to life should suffice.

Scumbag. Absolutely worthless to society. The world needs less of them. Murders and rapists serve no purpose in this world.

Why shouldn't she be out at that time of night. 10pm is not too late for an adult, heck I've seen children up that late. Or do you mean *she* shouldn't be out? Women should be just as safe as a man would be. Talk about blaming the victim... sheesh I'm all for branding rapists so there can never again be any question.
