Charlottetown police are looking for a man they suspect tried to attack a woman last night on the Confederation Trail.

The woman was running along the trail off the Lower Malpeque Road at around 5:30 p.m. when she says a man pushed her from behind and knocked her to the ground.

At around the same time, another man was running on the trail and intervened, police said, and the suspect then ran away.

The woman said all she remembers about the man who helped her is that he told her his name was Scott and he lives in Stratford.

Police said they would like to speak with him about what he saw.

Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
