Authorities said they are looking for a man who assaulted a woman while she was jogging on a sidewalk in West Knox County on Monday morning around 6:30.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office said the assault happened on Steele Road near Valley View Landing Lane.

The victim said a man, wearing a gray sweatshirt with a hood, attacked her from behind, dove at her legs and then grabbed her right one. The woman said the suspect then pulled her right leg towards him and began kissing it.

Next the victim said she kicked the suspect, which caused her right blue and white New Balance running shoe to come off. She then fled the scene leaving her shoe behind.

She said she looked back while fleeing and saw the suspect running eastbound behind the Valley View subdivision.

She told deputies she did not know the man.  She was wearing head phones so did not hear him coming up behind her.
