(Las Vegas, NV) — Police are searching for a man they say attacked two women in recent weeks. Metro Lieutenant Rob Lundquist says a 50-year-old woman was sexually assaulted April 15th near Vegas Drive and Tonopah Drive. This past Monday, a 30-year-old woman successfully fought off the attacker near Rancho Drive and Bonanza Road. The suspect is described as an African-American man in his late teens or early 20’s, who’s at least five-feet-five and weighs around 140 pounds. Police found a Cleveland Indians baseball cap at the scene and believe it to be the attacker’s.
Investigators say the matching descriptions, along with the similarities between the two attacks, leads them to believe they may be connected. If you have information, call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
