    Fort Worth police are investigating after a woman was attacked while jogging in the Chadwick Farms subdivision. Citing the ongoing investigation, police are releasing few details.

    It's the second recent attack on a female jogger, a woman was attacked in Westlake while jogging last week, but was able to escape without injury. Keller Police are handling the case. 

    "There are a lot of runners who jog every day and I think it's a concern to them because most of them are female," said John Gusti, who lives in the Chadwick Farms subdivision.

    Nearby Northlake posted on Facebook that its police department will add patrols. In recent months there have been other attacks on female joggers in Arlington and other North Texas cities, but police said at this point there is no evidence the incidents are connected.
