SEATTLE — A man dressed as the masked killer in the “Scream” horror movies jumped out of the woods behind a female jogger on the Burke-Gilman Trail on Sunday, Seattle Police said Tuesday.

“The woman said she was running along the trail near the 5200 block of 40th Avenue Northeast around 9 p.m. when she heard a ‘whoosh’ sound behind her. She turned and saw a man wearing a ‘Ghostface’ mask was standing in the bushes staring at her. When he began to walk toward her, the woman screamed and ran to a nearby grocery store where she called 911,” police said in a news release.

Officers checked the area but were unable to locate the masked man, police added.
