HOLLAND, Mich. – Holland Police are asking for tips after a female jogger reported being chased Monday night.

The incident happened at about 11:15pm on Central Avenue near 13th Street.

Police say they were sent to meet the 21-year-old woman who had run to a home on 13th Street near Central Avenue after being followed by a small white vehicle occupied by four or five men.  The woman told police and Hope Campus Safety officers that the men in the vehicle were making lewd comments to her and asked her to stop.  The front seat passenger then got out of the car and chased her.  She ran to a nearby home and the men and the vehicle left the area.

The woman described the driver and the front seat passenger as Hispanic men, about 30 years old. One was wearing a flat-billed baseball hat and the other a winter skull cap.  The vehicle was described as being small and white, but no license plate information was given.
