A man who attacked a bicyclist near Sequim last weekend may have left behind a clue.

A 22-year old old woman was knocked off her bike Saturday morning by a man wearing a Halloween mask.

She was riding along the Olympic Discovery Trail west of the Dungeness River, near the parking area off Runnion Road.

Clallam County Sheriff's deputies recently found a knife the attacker may have left behind. It has an intricately carved handle of a hawk's head. The blade also has engraving work.

The woman kicked and screamed and was not seriously injured in Saturday's attack.

The suspect is described as:

     --white male

     --6-feet tall, 200 pounds

     --short, light brown/blonde hair

     --wearing black hooded sweatshirt, long khaki shorts

     --red, black and white Halloween mask
