Authorities have released photos of a car driven by a person of interest in the case of a woman who was attacked by a man while she was walking on a Long Island trail.

The incident happened on Tuesday, Oct. 21 at approximately 11:30 a.m. in Port Jefferson Station.

The 54-year-old woman was walking on Greenway Trail, approximately one-quarter mile from the eastern entrance when the man tackled her from behind, Suffolk County Police said.

The woman was knocked to the ground and the man put his hand over her mouth and made comments that were sexual in nature, according to police.

The man fled toward the trail entrance when the woman screamed as they were approached by another walker, police said.

The man is described as Black, in his 30s, approximately 5-foot-10 tall and heavyset. 

He was wearing a black sweatshirt with green sweatpants with a black stripe down the side, police said. 

On Wednesday, Oct. 28, Suffolk County Police released photos of the suspect's vehicle, a dark-colored 2019-2020 Hyundai Elantra with a sunroof. (See above.)

The woman did not suffer any physical injuries, police said.
