“A lot of times you walk the sidewalk with your eyes down, or focusing on something else, so I’ll definitely try to pay more attention,” Overfelt said.

The suspect is described as a white man, with a medium to heavy build, in his mid-50s, with gray hair.

Claire Schaffner and her boyfriend live two blocks away from each other in the same area.

“[We walk] back and forth to each other’s places often, sometimes at night, sometimes alone,” said Schaffner.
