Sexual predators on the prowl

Police are on the lookout for two different sexual predators who struck in the area last week.

A 23-year-old woman told police she was forced into a driveway and sexually assaulted in Northeast Philadelphia on Nov. 6. The woman was walking down Aldine Street near Crispin at about 3 a.m. when the attacker appeared suddenly. Police said the victim described him as an average-built 25-year-old white man who is about 5-foot-6 and wore a red baseball cap.

At about 2 a.m. Nov. 7, a man emerged from the shadows with a handgun on Joyce Street near Tioga in Kensington and pushed a woman who was bringing out her trash back into her home. Once inside, the man demanded money, then bound and sexually assaulted the 24-year-old woman. The victim described her brutal attacker as a stocky white man in his 20s with blonde hair, blue eyes, white sneakers and a large gauge type ear piercing in his right ear. He also had tattoos on both arms, including a brightly-colored moon surrounded by stars.

Anyone with information on either case can call 215-685-3251.
