In the March incident, around 8:20 p.m., a woman was walking her dog on the sidewalk when the man approached her from behind, grabbing her by the neck and throwing her to the ground.
The suspect then punched the woman and attempted to strangle her.
The attack stopped once a passerby intervened, but then the suspect fled the scene.
He is described as a Black man between 25 and 35 years old, 5’6″, 150 pounds, and was last seen wearing a red Nike hoodie with blue jeans and red shoes.
