A woman who escaped an attack on a Queensland walking trail last week has warned others not to run alone.

“I fell to the ground and hit my head, so I think I blacked out for a bit.

“He held me down and the pressure, I just felt either his foot or hands holding me down.”

Former NRL player Arana Taumata found the 31-year-old concussed on the ground and helped her to safety.

Police have increased their presence on Mt Coot-tha and have started conducting patrols on horseback and trail bikes.

Detectives are yet to identify Alana’s attacker.

“It’s just a frightening thing to think that you can’t walk alone with your headphones in and it’s just not safe,” she said.

“It can happen to anyone, which is a really unfortunate thing.”

Alana is the second woman to report an assault on the trails in the past month.
