Jogger frightened by encounters with vehicle

A suspicious PT Cruiser tailed a 21-year-old jogger on Cleveland Road Monday evening, according to a Sandusky police report.

The woman was running west in the 1800 block of Cleveland Road when the vehicle passed her twice. When she turned around to head east in the Friendship gas station lot, the Cruiser pulled in behind her, the report said.

The vehicle then passed her a third time, turned around a few blocks down the road and headed back toward her — this time, at a very slow speed.

Frightened, the woman ran into Thirsty Pony and alerted police.

A Sandusky officer drove the woman home, then found the PT Cruiser at Roosevelt Street and Cleveland Road.

The driver, a 53-year-old man, began explaining why he was in the area before the officer ever asked. He said he was traveling back and forth from his daughter’s house, picking up pizza and other supplies for her, the report said.

He acknowledged seeing the jogger but denied following her.
