MILWAUKEE - Sheriff's Deputies responded to Lake Park Saturday after reports of a possible attack on a jogger. 
 
This is the second report in less than a week. Wednesday, a woman told Deputies she was running on the Oak Leaf Trail when a man on a bike assaulted her. She said he grabbed her and fondled her before she escaped.
 
The news has women who run in the popular park worried. 
 
"I usually have pepper spray with me if it's dark and I will try to stay in an open space." said Kateri Keller. The woman said she no longer wears headphones when running because she's paranoid about her safety.
 
Police released a sketch of the suspect in Wednesday's attack. They say the white male is around six feet tall. He has long shoulder length blond hair and jagged teeth.
 
The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department says Milwaukee Police are handling the case.  Milwaukee Police aren't releasing any information tonight.
