SEATTLE -- Seattle Police say there has been another attack on a woman near Seattle's Green Lake. This is the fourth attack reported in North Seattle since this weekend, and the second near the popular park.

Officers say a woman was attacked while walking home from a bar on the 2200 block of N. 56th Street.
 
It happened early Sunday morning, but was just reported late Monday.
 
The victim told police she noticed a man watching her as she left the bar. A few minutes later she noticed the same man following her.
 
The woman said she started jogging and when she turned to see where the man was, he tackled her from behind.
 
She fought him and was able to get away.
 
Police say she suffered minor injuries to a wrist, elbow and knee during the attack but did not need medical attention.
 
Police describe the suspect as a thin white male in his late 20's, 5'9" tall, 160 pounds with short brown hair.  He was last seen wearing a red plaid shirt and blue jeans.
 
Police say that nothing, at this time, indicates that the suspect described in Sunday morning's attack is responsible for any other recent attacks, but investigators are looking into that possibility.
