COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Investigators have released a sketch depicting a man suspected of inappropriate contact with a jogger last month.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office says the incident happened August 17th around 4:20 p.m. at Eagle Lakes Community Park.

The man reportedly grabbed a female jogger inappropriately in the park.

He is described as 6 feet tall with a muscular build, a goatee and straight white teeth with sharp/pointed incisors. He was wearing hunter green shiny shorts and no shirt at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at (239) 252-9300, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).

It's unclear if this case is connected to a similar nearby case five months previous, in which a man was accused of slapping a jogger in the buttocks along Lely Cultural Parkway.

The two cases took place about 4 miles apart.
