TYLER - Investigators say the woman was running through these streets, when she fought back her attacker. Bergfeld Park sits in the middle of the Azalea district, a typically quiet neighborhood full of historic homes. It's a place where parents take their kids to play, but Tyler Police say just after 5 Monday morning, a woman was attacked on Second Street while jogging toward Broadway Blvd.
Here are some tips for exercising while outdoors:
The Tyler Police Department advises women to never jog alone at night, and always be prepared with something to protect themselves, like pepper spray, an air horn, or a large stick. If possible always take a friend when you exercise outside.
