Woodland jogger stabbed in side at city park

Woodland police are investigating the stabbing of a jogger at a city park.

Officers were called to Woodland Memorial Hospital about 10 p.m. Monday where the jogger had gone for treatment after being stabbed at Pioneer Park, 1925 Branigan Ave., near Interstate 5 and Highway 113.

The 18-year-old Woodland man told officers he was jogging on the sidewalk on the south side of the park when a man punched him in the stomach and then plunged an unknown object into the left side of his abdomen.

The victim ran from the area and his attacker fled in an unknown direction, according to a police press release. The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt.

The jogger suffered a non life-threatening injury.
