Police in Arlington are investigating the third sexual assault near a popular trail this year, but detectives aren't sure if the incidents are  linked.

A 23-year-old Arlington woman was sexually assaulted Tuesday near mile marker 44 on the Four Mile Run bike and pedestrian trail. It was still light out as she ran through the Glencarlyn Park area, says Dustin Sternbeck, public information officer for the Arlington County Police Department. 

"The jogger is going down the pathway, she is approached and confronted by a knife wielding suspect, and forcefully taken off the trail where she is sexually assaulted," Sternbeck says. 

Afterwards, the suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction. The victim ran home to drive herself to the hospital. Police are working with the victim and expect to have a composite over the next few days.
