ALTON, Ill. (AP) — Bond has been set at $70,000 for a Metro-East teen accused in a sexual attack on a female jogger.
Seventeen-year-old Latayuss Curry of Alton was charged Friday with aggravated criminal sexual abuse and unlawful restraint.
Police say the woman was jogging Thursday afternoon when a man chased her, grabbed and fondled her.
The woman struggled and screamed, and a neighbor came up and stopped the attack.
The suspect fled on foot. Curry was arrested a short distance away.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
The (Alton) Telegraph reports that Curry is a resident of the Catholic Children’s Home.
