The victim was running near Cottage Hill Park at the time of her attack. Malone ran up behind her and when she moved to let him pass he ran up to her and grabbed her violently. Days after her attack, Malone was arrested and charged in her case as well as two other similar attacks. back when the incident happened. Fox10 News posted a surveillance photo and was there when he was led to metro jail.
