BATON ROUGE- Police have ramped up patrols around the LSU lakes and are urging joggers to be vigilant in the wake of an assault of a 30-year-old prosecutor who was choked unconscious during an evening jog.

The attack, which happened about an hour after sunset Nov. 21 along a popular running route, has frightened local runners and prompted some to begin carrying pepper spray.

Capt. Cory Lalonde, a spokesman for the LSU Police Department, said the lakes are still a "relatively safe" place to exercise. Like the Baton Rouge Police Department, LSU police also have increased patrols in the area since the attack.
