A female jogger at Waveny Park was approached Tuesday by a man who tapped her on the shoulder and made inappropriate remarks that alarmed her, according to various reports. As a result of the 5:40 p.m. incident at the park just over the Darien-New Canaan border, New Canaan police are increasing patrols and encouraging joggers not to jog alone. 

The man is described as white, about five-foot-eight, with short blonde hair and black-framed glasses, police said. He was wearing a blue hoodie with an Under Armour logo on the chest, shorts and sneakers. Anyone with information is encouraged to call New Canaan Police at 203-594-3500. “Joggers are encouraged to run in pairs and in well-traveled areas,” New Canaan Police Chief Leon Krolikowski said in a news release.
