SARASOTA (FOX 13) -

Sarasota Police need your help Monday morning as the search continues for a man who attacked a woman leaving work this past weekend.

The attack happened on Coconut Avenue Saturday night. The woman told police a man approached her and asked to use her cell phone before he grabbed her and threw her to the ground.

The woman fought him off and ran, and witnesses chased the suspect to the area of 10th Street and Lemon Avenue, but he got away.

Officials describe the suspect as a black male in his late 20s to early 30s, with short, braided hair and facial hair. He was last seen wearing a black, zipped fleece-type jacket with a white shirt and blue jeans.

If you have any information, you're asked to call the Sarasota Police Department at 941-316-1201.
