    A manhunt is underway in Fallbrook to find the person who sexually assaulted a woman jogging with her baby Wednesday morning. NBC 7’s Danya Bacchus reports.

    That’s when officials say a man jumped out of the brushes and sexually assaulted her at knifepoint.

    “He fled the area on foot a few moments later. She was thankfully able to give us a good description,” said Jan Caldwell with the sheriff’s department.

    The suspect was described as over 6 feet tall with a beer belly. He has neatly trimmed dark hair and a full mustache and beard cut high on the neck, police said. He was wearing a black T-shirt with holes and black work pants.

    Deputies have added extra patrols in the area.

    They say there have been no similar incidents reported in the area.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
