PROVO -- Police are looking for a man who attacked a woman as she walked along the Provo River Trail.

Provo police say the man approached the 18-year-old woman on the trail Thursday afternoon, asking if she had seen his dog. He held up his cell phone, like he was going to show her a picture of the dog, but the phone was off.

The woman started to walk away, but the man grabbed her and pulled her to the ground. She was able to fight him off and suffered some cuts and bruises.

Police say the man is in his late 40s with a large build and a mustache.
