    State Police have arrested a Worcester man in the killing of Vanessa Marcotte, a jogger whose body was found last August in Princeton, according to an official with knowledge of the investigation. Police arrested Angelo Colon-Ortiz early Saturday morning, according to the official. He is being held at the Millbury State Police barracks on $1 million cash bail. Assault charges were filed, said Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early. “I anticipate there will be a murder charge,” he said. “We’re very comfortable that we’ve got Vanessa Marcotte’s killer,” Early said.

    Cops caught a suspect Saturday in the murder of Karina ­Vetrano, the beautiful jogger whose brutal strangulation last summer — in the high weeds of Spring Creek Park in Queens — had transfixed the city. Officials did not immediately release the name of the suspect, but sources told The Post he is in his 20s and lives in a housing project in East New York, Brooklyn, a neighborhood just west of her home in Howard Beach. The suspect had been on police radar for a while, sources told The Post.

    DEAR man on the street, I’m writing to ask for your help. As a female runner, I am constantly aware of my safety when I’m out on an evening run. What is behind me? Do I hear anything strange? Why is that man running towards me? What is making those bushes rustle? And I am always home before dark. Author Margaret Atwood said, “Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them.” You may think that’s hyperbole, but I promise you, it’s not. Every woman I know has been in a situation at least...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Two employees of an Alaska backcountry lodge startled an adult grizzly bear while running on a trail in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. The bear stepped out of thick brush and mauled one woman while the other ran for help. Gabriele Markel, 20, was recovering Wednesday at an Anchorage hospital. Her wounds, which authorities described as bites and scratches on her head, back and arm, weren't considered life-threatening. She was upgraded to good condition from fair on Wednesday, authorities said. Markel and a co-worker, Kaitlyn Haley, 26, of California, were running Tuesday afternoon on the Cottonwood Creek Trail near...

    Austin, Texas Police Chief Art Acevedo was asked to defend the actions of his officers, who subdued and arrested a jogging woman because she was wearing earbuds and couldn’t hear their instructions. His response to the controversy was this: It could be worse–at least she wasn’t sexually assaulted. That response upset many Texas residents, and Acevedo was forced to walk back his comments on Monday. Austin police arrested the jogging woman last week. They were stationed at an intersection near the University of Texas’s Austin campus, giving jaywalking tickets to dozens of people. The woman ran right past them, unable...

    For a few days, it seemed that the strange tale of the unidentified jogger who had lain unconscious in a Brooklyn hospital for a week after collapsing in Prospect Park on New Year’s Eve would end happily. When his half brother identified him this week as Rynn Berry, it was too late; he was taken off life support on Thursday. When emergency responders took Mr. Berry, carrying keys and an asthma inhaler but no identification, to the hospital at 1 p.m. on Dec. 31, he had already gone into cardiac arrest and he soon lost brain function.

    Driving along at 35 MPH on a 2-lane avenue around 10 PM, a single headlight appeared in my car's path. I swerved onto a side street, shaken and uncomprehending. Leering down at me, astride a high tech bike, I could see in the light of the street lamp the person responsible for the near-miss. I rolled down the window and said -- remaining surprisingly noncombative -- "Hey man, I barely missed hitting you. You could have been killed." Expecting a thank you or an apology, instead I was the victim of an insane tirade, to the effect: "Hey buddy, you...

    An Allen woman said she got a painful reminder two weeks ago of the wild -- while jogging in a suburban neighborhood. The 39-year-old woman, who asked she not be identified, said a coyote took a bite out of her thigh as she rounded a curve on a popular Allen jogging trail. "I think I surprised it," she said. "That's what the problem was. It was dark, really quiet, and it probably thought I was attacking it."

    FREDERICK, Colo.—A Catholic priest faces an indecent exposure charge after police said he went jogging in the nude about an hour before sunrise. The Rev. Robert Whipkey told officers he had been running naked at a high school track and didn't think anyone would be around at that time of day, a police report said. He told officers he sweats profusely if he wears clothing while jogging. "I know what I did was wrong," he said in the report. Whipkey did not return phone messages. His attorney, Doug Tisdale, told the Longmont Times-Call that Whipkey had no comment. Whipkey, 53,...

    DELTONA, Fla. -- A woman who went on a jog with her two dogs Monday night attempted to shoot a pit bull because she felt threatened, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.

Bruce told officials that the dog's owner, Rickey Ward, was exciting the animal in such a way that she felt like she was going to be attacked.

    SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. A South Kingstown man who became ill after he drank from a beer bottle ingested a caustic liquid. Police say the liquid that sent Michael Darigan to the hospital last Sunday resembles lye. Lye is a highly concentrated solution of potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide. It's often found in commercial drain and oven cleaners. The 53-year-old Darigan found the bottle along his jogging route last week. Sergeant Thomas Owens says there's no evidence suggesting Darigan was personally targeted. Local police sent two bottles of the liquid to the state Department of Health for testing. Darigan's wife has...
