Police are investigating another sexual assault in Kensington - this one involving a woman who was attacked Monday night inside a man's truck.
It is not known whether the attack may be linked to several assaults and three slayings that have taken place in the area in recent months, police said.
Police said the latest victim was a woman who went with a man to his truck on Allegheny Avenue, near Frankford Avenue, shortly before midnight Monday. Once they were inside, the man physically and sexually assaulted her, police said. The woman told police her attacker was a Hispanic man in his 30s or 40s with a medium build and a goatee. The description is similar to that of a man who is wanted in the attacks on three other women. None of the other women has reported that the man had a car.
Officers have lately been combing Kensington in search of the man or men who have been strangling, choking, and otherwise assaulting women there. Several women have reported being choked and sexually assaulted. Two women were strangled in Kensington last month, and DNA has established that they were killed by the same person. - Allison Steele
