TEMECULA (CBSLA.com) — Riverside County authorities are searching for a suspect who sexually assaulted a female jogger while he was riding a bike.

The incident took place Jan. 21 near the intersection of Honors Drive and Southern Hills Drive in Temecula, Sgt. Curt Harris said.

The victim was jogging around 1:45 p.m. as the suspect, described as a male in his late teens, followed her on his bike.
