Fresno police detained a man who stopped a woman on a Woodward Park jogging trail Friday and asked for a hug.
Lt. Mike Brogdon said the woman was jogging near Friant Road and Rice Road about 12:30 p.m. when the 24-year-old man approached her. The woman ran away and was not injured.
Brogdon said the man was detained on a “5150” hold, which means he may be held as a danger to himself or others and may undergo a psychological evaluation. Brogdon said the man has prior “5150” detentions on his record and appeared to be homeless based on clothing and cleanliness.
