RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -A Washoe District Court jury this week convicted a man of attacking a woman who jogged by him along the Truckee River in downtown Reno.
Rylan Joel Wallette, 35, faces a May 31 sentencing for assault with a deadly weapon.
The Washoe County District Attorney’s Office said in November 2021 the woman was jogging on a path near the National Automobile Museum when Wallette knocked her down and threatened her with a large knife. The woman got up, ran away and called police.
She identified Wallette as her attacker. Police arrested him and found the knife he used.
