Summer is drawing to an end, and that means less daylight. Police in Montgomery County say that could lead to an increase in crime if residents aren't careful.

The warning comes after a woman jogging early Monday morning was sexually assaulted in Bethesda. The incident occurred on Old Georgetown Road just before 6 a.m. when a man grabbed her from behind.

Police say the suspect fled the scene once a passing car came into view.

They're advising residents to modify their outdoor activities to take place during daylight hours. Police say if people have to be outside when it's dark out, they should make sure others accompany them.
