Woman jogging in South City thwarts attempted kidnapper 

A pint-sized perv’s attempt to kidnap a woman jogger in South San Francisco on Saturday failed when she kneed him twice in the groin, police said. She did not report the incident to police until Wednesday.

The woman was jogging on Centennial Way, just north of Spruce Avenue, when the 5-foot, 4-inch creep grabbed her from behind by the waist around 7:30 a.m.

He said, “You are coming with me,” in Spanish, police said. But the woman let him know where he was going — to the ground. She broke away from his grip, then started kicking at him, striking his groin twice with her knee, South San Francisco police spokeswoman Sgt. Joni Lee said.

When he fell, she saw a small utility knife in his hand, police said.

She ran north and escaped without injury.

The woman described the man as a Hispanic man in his late 30s with a heavy build, with slicked-back hair, brown eyes and large, round cheeks. He was wearing a black sweatshirt, black crew pants and black shoes, police said.

The victim said she did not immediately report the attack because she did not want her family to worry, Lee said.

Lee said she has not heard of other attacks in the area.
