An incident in which an undressed male on a bicycle attacked a female jogger along the Trinity Trails last Saturday evening got some media attention, including this S-T article by Domingo Ramirez, Jr. The term "Saturday evening" is a bit misleading in terms of public perception possibly raising a security alarm about getting assaulted in darkness. The incident occurred around 6:00 p.m., which is still daylight this time of year, at a point along the Trails west of Edwards Ranch.
Yet any story about a female jogger being assaulted usually raises security alarms. I hope this doesn't result in an over-reaction in the way of too much police patrol or night-time lighting (lighting along the Trails south of downtown has increased in recent years on account of new residential and commercial developments). I like the free and unfettered access that still exists along the Trinity Trails for bikers, pedestrians, and runners.
