Yet another woman was assaulted in Kensington late Monday, and a police task force investigating a series of stranglings and chokings in the area is looking into the case.

The victim, who is in her 40s, went willingly with a man to his truck on Allegheny Avenue near Frankford about 11:45 p.m., police said.

Once she was inside the truck, the man sexually assaulted her, said Lt. Ray Evers, police spokesman.

Evers declined to say whether the man choked her.

Several other women have been sexually assaulted and choked in the neighborhood recently, including two who were killed.

"She was grabbed about the body," he said.

"The offender's hands were all over her body. She was grabbed everywhere."

Evers said cops who were working a detail in the area saw the woman upset on the street.

He did not say whether her assailant was the same man being sought in the other cases.

"Everything is being included so the task force will look at it, and if they deem it is not part of what they are looking at, they will exclude it then," Evers said.

He declined to say whether DNA was taken from the victim.

He said the woman described her attacker as a Hispanic man in his 30s or 40s with light skin, a medium build and a goatee.

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, Homicide Capt. James Clark and Special Victims Unit Capt. John Darby scheduled a news conference for this morning and were expected to discuss the Kensington assaults.
