An 18-year-old white woman was attacked while jogging in Schaumburg Thursday evening, police said Friday.
The Streamwood woman was jogging on the sidewalk westbound on Schaumburg Road near Barrington Road at about 7:45 p.m. The male suspect was walking in her direction, stepped in front of the woman and grabbed and tore her clothes.

The man is described as Negro who is 18 to 19 years old with short dark hair. He was wearing a white tank top and navy blue work pants.
