Deputies release sketch of suspect in Lake County trail sexual assault
Authorities on Monday released a sketch of a suspect they say tried to sexually assault a woman on a hiking trail in Lake County. Deputies said the woman was on a trail at Lake Louisa State Park in Clermont around noon Saturday when an unknown man came out of the woods and attacked her. Authorities said the woman fought him off, causing the man to run off. The woman, who officials said was in her 20s, was taken to a hospital for evaluation. Officials said she was not injured. Authorities closed the park to search for the man, described as a white man, possibly in his 40s, between 5 feet, 8 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds.
On a GoFundMe page, the 30-year-old said he was gored in the hip and shoulder before being sent "flying into the air and down the hill."
"I was then kicked and trampled, cracking a rib and cutting my head in the process, before the bison moved away," he wrote. "I yelled for some nearby hikers to call 911 as I lay in a ball hoping the bison wouldn't attack again."
His mother told FOX13 her son hikes in the area frequently and planned for the possibility of an attack. She said her son's plan was to avoid a direct hit to the front or back and then curl into a ball to protect his vital organs.
“Boy, if those guys charge, you are pretty much defenseless,” Bourgeous. “If he had not turned just one inch this way or that way, it would have gone through his heart and lungs and lower internal organs and there’s no way he would have survived."
