A Tyler man was arrested on Sunday after allegedly attempting to sexually assault a woman near Old Bullard Rd and Fair Ln. 56-year-old Alvin Jones, a registered sex offender, was found in the area following the assault.

Around 6:30 on Sunday morning, a 56-year-old white female was taking a morning walk when a man on foot came up to her and started a conversation. The female changed direction in an attempt to separate herself from the man when he attacked her.

The suspect wrestled the victim to the ground and dragged her into a wooded area in the neighborhood. He then attempted to sexually assault her. She began fighting and screaming, causing the suspect to run away.

Officers arrived on the scene, searched the area and located the suspect.

Jones was transported to the Smith County Jail. He had been arrested in Smith County in 2008 for a parole violation.
