The Genesee County Sheriff's Office is warning women to not jog alone following two attacks in as many weeks in the county.

According to the Tri County Times, the sheriff's office released a sketch of a man wanted in the two attacks.

In the first attack on Oct. 7 in Goodrich, the suspect jumped out from behind a tree and punched a 36-year-old mother who was running with her young son and daughter. They helped fend off the attack, the Tri County Times reports.

Another attacked happened in the Davison area.

The suspect is described as a black male, about 6-feet tall with dark skin and very muscular. He was seen driving a 2007-2013 black Chevy Tahoe with tinted windows, chrome rims and a roof rack.
