Huntington Beach police Wednesday night were searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman while she was jogging. The attack took place last week about 6:45 a.m. while the woman was near Huntington Village Lane and Center Avenue, police said. The woman noticed the man following her.

The Huntington Beach Police Department is considering posting the names of drunk-driving suspects on its website as part of a stepped-up strategy to address the problem downtown and citywide. In a report submitted to the City Council this month, police said drinking and driving is a "significant problem" in Surf City and suggested that publicly posting names sends a message that police are cracking down. "It's not a wall of shame we're looking to put up," said police Lt. Russell Reinhart.
