After a woman was attacked and sexually assaulted Sunday evening police are increasing their patrols in the bosque.

The woman who was attacked was walking along the Rio Grande looking for her children and husband who were rafting, according to police. Authorities have not released the woman’s name or many other details about the attack in order to protect her safety.

KOB Eyewitness News visited the bosque Monday afternoon to find out how people are protecting themselves after the attack.

“Now that I know I will try to go more where the bikers are,” Paulina Pino said. She runs the trail by herself three times a week and said there are already some things she does to try to stay safe.

“I never go in the trees by myself because anybody can hide anywhere in there,” she said.

Investigators are still looking for the suspect. He is described as a Hispanic male around the age of 16-19. Police said he was wearing a white tank top with black shorts and carrying a black backpack.
