One Colorado woman is not staying silent after she was brutally attacked while walking her dog on Wednesday morning.

Vanessa Kinsey went public with her story in a Facebook post she shared on Thursday, one day after she said the attack took place on the Platte River Trail in Denver, Colorado.

Kinsey wrote she was taking her dog, Berreta, on a walk along the trail at about 7:15 a.m. when she allegedly recognized a man — later identified by police as Johnny Dewayne Harris Jr. — walking along the trail that she had seen the day before.

“He didn’t make eye contact with me and I got a very strange vibe,” Kinsey claims. “Somehow he made it on the other side of the [trail] loop, meaning he must’ve cut through the woods somewhere knowing where I was headed.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Kinsey alleged the man threatened to kill her, although she said that did not stop her from screaming.

According to the report, after Kinsey was restrained with ropes, she escaped and good Samaritans came to her rescue.

People reports:

Police arrested Johnny Dewayne Harris Jr., 48,  and charged him with first-degree kidnapping and sexual assault, according to online jail records. His bond has been set to $1 million.

Read Kinsey’s account of the attack in her own words in the Facebook post below, as well as a video clip from a news station report on the incident.

  1. make sure this guy doesn’t get out…if he does…make sure he is never seen again. Go get your lic. to CCW….shoot the next pervert!!!

  2. Unfortunately a gun may not work all that well on a trail. I pass women on a trail that are wearing headphones, not a good idea. I have a knife that has a very short blade and extremely sharp. The knife hangs vertically from a holster, very light and is like a necklace. The woman brings her hand to her chest with open hand and closes fingers around pockets in handle and from there on anything she touches will bleed. Made in Oregon with amazing design.
