The world has grown more and more violent in the past century, and the crime streak doesn't seem to end. In fact, criminals seem to be getting away with it more often.

On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, a teenager was approached and sexually assaulted in broad daylight while she was jogging near the Gunn High School area in Palo Alto, California.

The man was hiding behind some bushes when he stopped the victim in her tracks and flashed a firearm at her, forcing her to stray from the path, as reported by Fox News.

The victim's identity hasn't been revealed for her protection, and the man, who was described as being in his thirties, still hasn't been located nor identified by the police.

The teenager, who is a student at Gunn High School, was approached at around 1:45 p.m., near Tesla's headquarters. She said that he surprised her and was aggressive.

According to the source, she was forced to perform sexual acts at gunpoint. In the end, the man, who might have been a Filipino descendent, left the scene on foot.

The victim was able to find help nearby and was rushed to the hospital; she is currently in stable condition. Following the attack, the police responded with a massive manhunt.

As reported by Fox News, deputies from the Stanford Department of Public Safety, as well as canine units from the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety joined the Palo Alto police force.

A helicopter was also provided by the California Highway Patrol. But, despite the authorities' means and best efforts, they weren't able to locate the criminal, who might have had a car parked nearby.

The case will continue to be investigated. So far, the police's only lead is the vague description of the suspect, including the clothes that he was wearing: a black sweatshirt with a bear on it and baggy gray pants.
