KALAMAZOO, Mich. – A man has been charged in an attack on a jogger in Portage last month.
Jamal Johnson was arraigned Thursday on charges of Assault and Battery and Unlawful Imprisonment. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.
The incident happened June 27 in Lakeview Park. A woman jogging in the park reported being grabbed and pulled to the ground by a man. She screamed and he let her go and fled from the scene, according to the victim.
Police say that Johnson was charged in a similar type of incident in 2015 on the Bicentennial Trail.
