Police were searching for a North Philadelphia man accused of raping one woman and stabbing another last weekend in the city's Hunting Park section.
Orlando Cabero, 39, was an acquaintance of the 40-year-old and 20-year-old victims. The three were together early Sunday in the 800 block of Schiller Street, said Sgt. Ray Evers, a police spokesman.
Cabero, also known as Jumbo or June, is accused of choking and stabbing the older woman and sexually assaulting the younger one. When he fled, authorities said, the women called police, who took them to a hospital. The 40-year-old remained in stable condition yesterday with wounds to her upper body and defensive injuries to her arms, Evers said.
