A 32 year-old woman was mugged this morning at 7:38 a.m. while walking her dog along a trail near Haddon St. N and Marion St. Hamilton Police are looking for information and have a description of a male suspect.

The woman was approached aggressively by a white male 5’6’’ to 5’7’’ tall with a stocky build. The man was clean-shaven and wore track pants, a black hoodie and white running shoes.

The suspect grabbed the woman, threw her to the side of the trail and demanded cash from her. He threatened to kill her, but let her go. The victim ran northward to the Forsyth Ave. area, where she called the police.

The suspect was last seen running down the trail toward Marion St.

Detective Fletcher of the Hamilton Police Division One said the victim doesn’t appear to have sustained physical injuries. Fletcher said the investigation is still in the early stages, and it is uncertain whether or not this was an isolated incident.

The Hamilton Police encourage anyone with information to call 905-546-3821.
