Southern Illinois teen charged in sexual attack on jogger

ALTON, Ill. (AP) -- Bond has been set at $70,000 for a southern Illinois teen accused in a sexual attack on a female jogger.

Latayuss Curry, 17, of Alton was charged Friday with aggravated criminal sexual abuse and unlawful restraint.

Police say the woman was jogging Thursday afternoon when a man chased her, grabbed and fondled her.

The woman struggled and screamed, and a neighbor came up and stopped the attack.

The suspect fled on foot. Curry was arrested a short distance away.

It wasn't immediately clear whether he has an attorney.

An Alton newspaper reports that Curry is a resident of the Catholic Children's Home.
